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.

    • Prairie’s Edge (Swift County) is the closest I know of. I’ve been there and they are nice. But it is a bit of a drive for me, too. It would be nice if something was closer, like Montevideo.

  1. I am living in Bloomington, MN. Is there anyone nearby that has recommendations on the best place to purchase from? What is the closest place or who does a delivery?

    Thanks!

    • We just got back to the Twin Cities area and are temporarily staying in White Bear Lake. I’m confident that any of the providers on this list would have high-quality milk and other products. Sometime soon I’m going to head on up to the Trytten Dairy in Harris, MN and will also check out Wellspring Organic Farms in Farmington, which is probably the closest one to you of those listed here.
      However, you may be able find what you’re looking for at one the many farmers’ markets or coops in the area.

  2. Hi,
    I am interested in organic raw milk. My number is 320-630-9047. I live in the Motley, MN area and would like to find someone within a reasonable distance.
    Thanks,
    Ethel

  3. I am looking for raw goat’s milk within an hour of Apple Valley, MN. I have contacted many farms from this page through email and only one responded (the one that does not have milk available). I then made several phone calls and left messages but have not heard back from anyone, including the local weston price person recommended on this site. Isn’t there any way to find raw goat’s milk in my area? Why does no one respond?

    • Thanks for visiting the site and supporting raw milk. These listings are maintained part-time, so we rely on the suppliers to keep us updated, and they don’t always let us know if they aren’t operational any more. If you’ve been emailing people, you might try calling (and vice versa).

  4. I am looking for 100% grass fed and finished raw butter and cream from cow’s milk in MN. If anyone knows of a farmer/producer grass finishing these products, please reply with farm and contact info.

  5. I live in Coon Rapids and am looking for somewhere nearby to find raw milk. I’m also going through Detroit lakes this upcoming weekend so I could pick it up somewhere in DL as well?

    • I don’t know if you will see this reply because I just saw your request for raw milk. I only have raw goats milk but it is very good and just as healthful as cows milk if not more. My farm is called My Busy Acre. Call me at 218-850-3151 ask for Shirley. I am listed in the farms for Minnesota.

  6. Old fashioned traditions has great products but it’s a terrible business. Tracie is very ride uses profanity. It is such an unorganized mess. Ur lucky when u get what u paid for.

    • We err on the side of listing farmers who have raw milk, unless there are complaints about safety that we are able to follow up on, in the interest of helping the most people possible get access to raw milk. There are many places where there are not many choices. Not every farmer provides great customer service. Not everyone has the same opinion of what constitutes great customer service. Not everyone is offended by profanity (or they’re willing to put up with it if they really need their raw milk!). I’m publishing your comment so people can adjust their expectations about customer service and if it is a problem, maybe the farmer will also see this and make some changes. Thanks for writing.

  7. Farmers provide the information for their listings. I have checked Old Fashioned Traditions’ website and Facebook page and did not find an address. It may be that Ogilvie is the largest community this farm serves so it makes sense for them to be listed under Ogilvie for customers in Minnesota seeking raw milk. Some farmers also do not want to provide their physical address on the site because government organizations have used this site to find and harass raw milk farmers.

    I am publishing your customer service comments though.

  8. Beware that Old Fashioned Traditions deliveries will be erratic at best, if at all. Many reasons and excuses are offered for inconsistent weekly deliveries. Some weeks there have been no deliveries. They definitely need a working back up plan for uninterrupted service to customers depending on them. However, the products are delicious!

  9. Thanks for commenting. Since the time that original comment was posted the dairy you mentioned had asked to be removed from our site (many suppliers do this for a variety of reasons). We missed their mention in the original comment, but have since updated it. Please ask anyone contacting you about this supplier to reach out to you directly. Thanks for your input and understanding.

  10. Hi, I live in maple grove and I am tired of looking for a2 cow milk. I would like to know if any farm has dropsites near maple grove or any farms that is located nearby

  11. I live in Carlton and am looking for raw milk. Do you know anyone else that has a farm near here? Thank you in advance. Ph 218-461-5691

  12. How do I become a member?
    Also are there any groups that I could join
    so as to share pickup and delivery?
    I live in Elk River

    • Mike,
      This is in response to your GMO question. This link discusses the difference between non-GMO and organically grown labels. I hope this helps. {All USDA certified organic produce, grains, meats, and processed foods do not allow the use of GMOs.

      What does the organic certification mean?

      Processed foods with 95%-100% certified organic ingredients can be certified to use the USDA Organic Seal. The other 5% like salt and water cannot contain GMOs.
      Prohibits use of chemical fertilizers, synthetic substances, irradiation, sewage sludge, or GMOs in organic production.
      Prohibits antibiotic and synthetic hormone use in organic meat and poultry.
      Requires 100% organic feed for organic livestock.

  13. Trytten’s are still listed, and have moved to Harris. You will find them up above. They are not by Morris any longer. You are correct, but their lovely milk is still available not far away, and closer if you are metro.

  14. We are selling to others in Woodbury and would love you to try our milk. Call Craig and Vicki Trytten at 507-450-4408

  15. Hello, Rita and all! This is Craig and Vicki Trytten and we are now very near you at Harris, just north of North Branch and only a mile off I-35. Please you and all call at 507-450-4408

  16. Cedar Summit Farms is currently closed. The utilities ran large powerlines right through their farm. There is a law called Buy the Farm where the owners were given compensation because they would lose business because of the negative effects the stray voltage from the powerlines not only affect the health of their cows but also on the people working on the farm. It’s really sad and a true loss. The cattle were bought by a guy in NW Minnesota, possible that they might restart up the Cedar Summit brand but I don’t know that for sure.

  17. I have no idea who you are or what emails you are referring to. We do not do farm visits. Yes, you can pick up at the farm but we are not a petting zoo and I do not have 3 hours to take out of my day to spend showing you the animals. We have several who pick up at the farm with no problems. That was explained in every email I have sent out to everyone who has wanted to pick up at the farm. Dropsite in Duluth is filled every week.

    • It would be really great if it was possible to email the person posting the comments. Most who post have no contact info given or way to contact them through this board. Is there a way to change the settings somehow? On my posts I have my email and website posted but most who post looking for milk or such do not.

      • We have to moderate the comments for a variety of reasons (not least of which is to prevent those who do not want to be listed as vendors from being suggested by commenters). It does create an incovenience, and we are in the process of evaluating alternatives. Thanks for visiting the site, and for your feedback/

  18. I am now listed above for raw goat milk. Had to raise price of milk due to higher feed and hay prices. Sorry about that. My Busy Acre just southwest of Detroit Lakes, MN.

  19. Tracy,

    I think I emailed you from your site. I was interested in connecting with you in the Eastern Suburbs. Woodbury would work great if you have opening!

  20. hello, I’ve been following the post here. I’m struggling with how to post and contact: Mandy with the farm just north of New Ulm.. as I would like to start purchasing raw milk and products directly from the farm. I live in Minneapolis and looking for genuine Farms that I can purchase RAW milk and organic produce from .. if anyone can direct me or help or has a farm that sells genuine food I would be greatly appreciative. Please contact:
    jim storm at jimsadventure@hotmail.com
    thank you very much

  21. I am looking for raw/organic milk, preferably grass fed near ely MN. Duluth is fairly close, so I was interested in your farm or drop-off area.

  22. Is the drop-off in S. Mpls still a going concern? I am homebound but might be able to find somebody to pick up milk, cow or goat, for me. Thanks for your help. St, Paul could also be a possibility

  23. raw milk is what you need not pasturized, don’t heat it at home. this way you preserve the antibodies in the milk, 10% of the antibodies pass into the blood stream and add immunity to the child or the sick.
    whey is better than milk, especially fermented whey, don’t throw the whey to the pigs, dry it as powder or make aged cheese with it, first milk is great for antiibodies immunity, all ailments Aptamil baby formula is first milk.

  24. I live in the twin cities area and would love to find a farm that sells whole milk near me. We are actually very close to the Wisconsin Minnesota line over near Lakeland, Minnesota.

  25. Don’t know why replies are not connecting. I have a dropsite in Coon Rapids. Cows are tested through UC Davis for A2 genes. Entire breeding group are A2/A2. Email for info on joining dropsite. My email is posted above.

    • I don’t know why I am even bothering with posting this, you need to contact me through email. You do not have your email posted so unless you actually check the board you will not see this anyway. If you click on my name you will get an email link. Use it. I have drop sites all over that are filled weekly. This board is not overly good at getting connected to anythng. Good luck. Tracy

  26. Yes, that’s what I’ve read in places such as the Weston A. Price Foundation website, that babies can safely consume RAW milk, whether cow or goat. However, to use it as a substitute for formula, one must dilute it with water and add several different healthy oils, lactose, and a few other nutrients.

  27. I see these posts are from a year ago, but do you still sell raw milk in the new prague area??? I’m in southern metro and need something closer to my house.
    and are you GMO soy free?

    Thank you!!
