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.

    Facebook: texleyfarmfresh. Texley Sustainable Agriculture offers raw milk from a small dairy herd of Brown Swiss and Jersey Cows. During the grazing season the cows are grazed rotationally on pasture, and fed a basic grain ration at each milking that is milled on the farm. In the winter the dairy cows are managed on deep bedding and fed alfalfa, and are brought into the barn only when needed during inclement weather. Milk is
    available for purchase by appointment, however most supporters of the farm receive raw milk through a seasonal herdshare. A herdshare can be purchased for $40 and entitles each herdshare holder to receive 2 gallons of milk per week for an entire milking season. On a monthly basis, a fee is paid to the farm in proportion to the amount of milk received, the fee is equitable to $5/half gallon. (Example: for
    $20/month a herdshare holder receives a ½ gallon per week.) Raw milk pick-up is every Wednesday night at The Stirred Pot, a local café in Albion, at 5:30pm. At this pick-up location, you can also purchase eggs, chicken, seasonal produce, and place orders for pork and beef. On occasion products from other producers will also be available.
    If you are interested in receiving Raw Milk through a herdshare but live in a different community, you are encouraged to organize multiple households that are interested in using raw milk and set up your own raw milk pick-up. The milk will be bottled and ready for you on the farm, and it is up to you to distribute it to the herdshare members of your community. Compensation for your time, travel, and
    labor, is between you and the herdshare collective in your community. Please contact the farm if you want to set up a raw milk pick-up location. Texley Sustainable Agriculture also offers pasture raised chicken, pasture-raised and milk-fed pork, holiday turkeys, and grassfed beef.

  1. Hi there, Is this list (nationwide) available in an excel sheet?

    We’re working on a little project (a searchable map) for raw milk and would love this info!

  2. Would love to find raw milk to make Salt Rising Bread like my grandmother made. My grandfather had a dairy farm in central Indiana. I am 83 years old and still remember when you could buy Salt Rising Bread at the store. Wonderful. I have the recipe if I could obtain Raw Milk. I live in Bellevue, NE.

  3. Looking for raw cows milk near Norfolk, NE for my little girls who cannot digest pasteurized. Does anybody have any leads? I want it for my girls so much!! I’d be willing to travel up to 45 miles.

  4. Hello, I realize this original post is a few years old, but since I’m in the Grand Island area, wanted to reply anyway. We will be offering raw milk from our Jersey herd starting January 2018, so if there are people still in the Grand Island/York/Aurora/Kearney area, we would like to spread the word!

    More info to come… stay tuned!

  5. I would be interested in purchasing goats milk and goat cheeses. If you have any suggestions for farmers near the Lavista / Omaha area, I would be very appreciative.

  6. Hi Kim!
    I would be interested also ! I live in Bellevue. I’ve traveled as far as Lincoln before to get raw milk but the drive is too much.

    • Very Interested in raw goats milk in the Norfolk area. we use it right now and go thru about 3 galls every two weeks
      Please let me know if you have some available

  7. A couple days ago we visited Branched Oak Farms near Raymond to meet Doug Dittman and purchase some of his organic raw milk from rotationally pastured Jersey cows. I just finished the first half gallon and it’s fantastic, rich and delicious. The Dittmans also make some raw milk cheeses which are also great if anyone is looking for real, organic farmstead cheeses.

  8. There is no hard and fast rule, and what will happen is that the milk will naturally begin to sour as the good bacteria become more active in warmer temperatures, and more quickly digest the lactose in the milk. So you’ll get sour milk more quickly than if you’d kept it as cold as possible during transport. Sour milk can be used in cooking. We have articles on this site with ideas for using sour milk so it isn’t wasted. It doesn’t “spoil” the way pasteurized milk will.

    But as for transporting it, I would use a cooler or at least an insulated bag in the car, like they sell at grocery stores, to protect your investment. Raw milk is too expensive to waste letting it sour too quickly so that you won’t want to drink it or use it as fresh milk. The hotter it is and the longer you have to drive with it, the more care you’ll need to take, such as using ice packs or a bag of ice.

  9. That is correct. Yes, there is a great demand for raw milk in Omaha. Unfortunately, not many people want to drive “far” to get the milk. It’s not possible to have a dairy farm right in the middle of Omaha, and asking a farmer to deliver puts them in a precarious position with authorities. Most raw milk farmers are small, family farms that want to offer an amazing product. We’re not big corporations with endless funds and free shipping.

  10. We have been looking for raw milk since we moved to Bellevue in August. Could you please provide the contact information for your farmer? Thanks.

  11. Hi, We are interested in raw milk and live near Omaha. Could you please give us the info on your friendly farmer?
    Thanks
    Mary

  12. We belong to a co-op that drives in weekly rotations to Chisholm Farms. Please check out the farm link on previous page to find open co-op positions. We are always happy to add more to our co-op, then we can reduce the frequency of our drives.

    • I don’t see a co-op positions link, but I would love to join! Should I contact Chisolm directly to see if they have a co-op going?

  13. Hi Kim,
    I see you have located a farmer and have purchased from him for 3 years now, sounds like a good record to me. I would appreciate his contact info to purchase some raw milk.

    Thanks

  14. Anyone know of a good raw milk source around the Columbus area? I’m also looking for a good source of grass-fed beef. Thanks!

  15. I live in Bellevue and I am looking for raw milk and cream to make ice cream. Ate the cows pasture fed or grain fed? Are the animals treated with hormones? How much a gallon? Thanks please send me info.
    Kelly

  16. Hi Kim

    I just moved to Bellevue and have driven all the way to Branched Oak farm which was kind of fun but the 2+ hour round trip was a bit much. How can I contact you?
    david

  17. I would definitely be interested if cows are grass fed, hormone free, etc. I would like to see and learn about the operation.

  18. Jodi, Do you still sell raw goats milk in the Norfolk area… I would buy it if so. My 3 month old is on it and the people we get it from are not sure how much they will be able to provide for me thru the winter
    Thanks
    Ashley

  19. Has there been any progress in finding milk in/ around Omaha? I know that Tim isn’t selling any now so that’s a no go, and the nearest seems to be Lincoln. Have you found anyone else?

  20. I too, am looking for raw milk/cream and live in Grand Island. There is a farm by Spaulding I have gotten it from. Would be great if there was someplace a lot closer. If not and if there is any interest in GI area, perhaps we could all get together and make the trips worthwhile to Spaulding
    .

  21. Thanks for your helpfulness! Please ask the source to contact us to be listed on this site. We only list or mention raw milk farmers with their permission. Too often this site is used by gov’t agencies to find and harass farmers so we make sure they are willing to be mentioned here. Thanks for understanding!

  22. I am interested in raw milk in the Norfolk area. I have never had goat’s milk, but would consider it! Looking forward to hearing from you.

  23. I am 15 minutes from Elkhorn anyone who wants to buy raw milk can contact me at 402-443-8859 or text this number also. Thanks Tim

    • Hi Tim,
      Are you selling raw milk? Is it pastured and organic? Are your cows fed grain at all and if so, is it organic and soy free? How much do you charge per gallon? Am I able to get it weekly on a standing order? I will need it starting in August. You can email me at a.vell@hotmail.com. Thank you!

  24. Nick I would like to provide Raw Milk to the Omaha area I am trying to find out how much interest there would be for this. I am only 20 minutes from Village Point on paved road. I would like to find several families before I start. I have everything lined up to start except the people to buy it. E- mail or call @ 402-443-8859.

  25. Mike have been thinking about milking to sell raw milk. I am 20 minutes from Omaha . I was wondering how much interest there would be for this.
