Important Notes about the Listings

  1. RAW MILK POLICY STATEMENT: The Weston A. Price Foundation’s goals include promoting a healthy diet for people everywhere, based on natural and traditional foods, and assisting individuals and families in accessing those foods through information, education, and helping to restore the direct relationship between food consumers and food producers. The Foundation believes, based on sound scientific evidence, that raw milk is an important component of a healthy diet. To assist its members and the public in obtaining raw milk, the Foundation publishes a list of farms that produce it, because this information is not otherwise readily and comprehensively available to consumers. Listing of a farm does not imply endorsement by the Foundation. Individuals who purchase raw milk and other natural foods for themselves and their families need to “know their farmer” because they bear the responsibility for ensuring that they are getting safe and healthy products.
  2. NO ADVERTISING: The Foundation accepts no money for the listings; the listings are not advertisements. All listings are at the sole discretion of the Weston A. Price Foundation.
  3. NO MARKETING: The email addresses listed here are not to be used for any purpose other than to contact the farmers regarding the availability of their products. Use of the listed email addresses for marketing or other such purposes is strictly prohibited.
  4. RAW MILK CONSUMERS PLEASE NOTE: This list of raw milk sources probably represents only a portion of the raw milk producers in your state. For additional raw milk sources, contact your local Weston A. Price Foundation Chapter Leader.
  5. RAW MILK PRODUCERS PLEASE NOTE: The FDA and State Agencies have discovered this list and sometimes use it for their own purposes, so exercise caution with your listing. If you choose not to have a listing, make sure your local WAPF Chapter Leader has your name for referrals.
  6. USDA, FDA and STATE AG AGENCIES PLEASE NOTE: Raw milk is Nature’s perfect food and is extremely important for the developing brains and nervous systems of infants and children. Furthermore, in many children not fortunate enough to have started life on raw milk, raw milk given later in childhood has improved autism, behavior problems, frequent infections, deafness, asthma and allergies and other serious health conditions. Please bear in mind that any move you make to stop or hinder a raw dairy operation will actually HARM, not help the infants and children who rely on that milk, and may make it difficult for all children to obtain this milk in the future–including your own children and grandchildren. An interruption in supply can be VERY detrimental to a growing infant or sick child who has no other options. Read for yourself on our Testimonials page. If you are concerned about safety, rest assured. In the farm-to-consumer distribution model, the farmer receives timely and relevant feedback directly from the customers, something that farmers selling bulk milk never receive. Raw milk is actually the safest food around with so much consumer oversight and also with an extremely efficient built-in anti-pathogen mechanism! If you are concerned about rules, then consider investing the same amount of time you’d spend persecuting a raw milk farmer into advocating for supportive raw milk legislation.
  7. LISTING SOURCES: The listings here are provided by people who discover sources of real milk in their communities and tell us about them. If you discover a listed supplier is no longer providing real milk, please tell us about it by following the instructions on the Add, Update, or Remove a Listing page. We trust our members and consumers to check out each farm to make sure it is clean and that the cows are mostly pasture fed.

  1. Sidehill Farm has quality milk and there might be raw cream on their website. Double check them. South Wind Farm has very creamy milk and is the closest to Amherst, if you are patient enough to strain the cream off your own.

  2. Hi there — have you had any luck with this? I live in Falmouth and want to start buying raw milk but haven’t had any luck in finding a way to get it.

    • Hi Rachel,

      Yes! I have! There is a farm in Dartmouth, called Paskamansett Farms, and there are groups in Falmouth AND Woods Hole who’s members alternate going to get the milk each week for everyone. I would call the farm for the contact person, I don’t want to post here.
      Also, there are two farms on the Vineyasrd that sell raw milk. Mermaid Farm and The Grey Barn, though neither of them have Guernsey or Jersey cow milk, which is the best and what Paskamansett Farm has (Mermaid might have a Jersey cow, unsure).

      Hope you get some soon.

  3. I am searching for raw milk/cheese from grass-fed goat and cows. No Holsteins.Jersey or others okay. Live in Wakefield MA. Willing to cross over to NH if farm is close enough. Will benefit my health immensely.

    Thanks
    April

    • April, Brookford Farm from Cantebury NH, is at the Salem NH Farmers Market, every Sunday, from 10-2, at the Mary Fiske School (exit 2 off 93N), (indoors for the winter). I get all my raw dairy from them weekly. Milk, cheese, quark, yogurt, kefir, and cream. Awesome choices in cheeses.

  4. I just read that Cricket Creek Farm in Williamstown offers Raw Milk. Please call ahead before driving from Lebanon 🙂

  5. Some of these are outdated. Some of these places do not exist. Not enough information given on others. I wish this site would at least let you put your zip code in to search nearest 20 or 60 miles instead of having to Google every individual listing. MA isn’t that big but some of these small towns I’ve never heard of.

    • I’m researching ways to get the listings google-mapped but it’s a huge undertaking. We have only the information provided by farmers or in some cases customers, and they don’t always tell us when they go out of business. I hope to move to a system where a farmer must fill in a form that requires a certain minimum set of information.

      • I just read that the Oake Knoll Lawton Farm in Foxboro goes to the winter farmer’s market in Codman Sq. Jan-March. They have raw milk, although I don’t know if they bring it to the Farmer’s market. I plan to call to find out. They have a website. Do a search under Oake Knoll Ayrshires Foxboro.

  6. I have to edit out farm names in comments if they aren’t already listed on our site. Because of the often negative attention being listed on this site can bring to a farm, we want the farmer’s permission before listing them. Please encourage this farm to follow the instructions to add a listing (http://www.realmilk.com/real-milk-finder/add-update-or-remove-a-listing/) if they offer raw dairy products. I went to their website and don’t see mention of dairy. If they don’t have dairy but have the CSA and meat, LocalHarvest.org is a great place for them to be listed. Thanks!
