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.

16 thoughts on “New Hampshire

  1. There are so many raw milk choices in NH because this State has continued the tradition of staying out of transactions between farmers and those wanting to buy their milk – at least up to 20 gallon a day. This includes butter, yogurt, and cream.

    The cost of setting up a State inspected dairy and being inspected is too high for many, especially if they just want a small herd, and a life! Or the option of selling surplus milk from the animals kept primarily for supplying their own families.

    Many of these farm are State licensed though: Benedikts, Flying Cloud, Brookford, among them.

  2. You might want to take note, Lorren Joyce milk gives their cows at least 15 lbs of GMO grain a day. They don’t seem to rotate the cows either, as theres little room. With that said, the milk does taste very good, being all Jersey, and the grain adds more flavor. The reason for using GMO feed is to keep the cost down. But I would think in the future perhaps there could be some improvement. Some farms actually grow their own grain.

    • Grain does NOT ‘add flavor’ to milk. For example, one of the mot popular flavors of ice cream at Benedikt Dairy in Goffstown, NH is ‘Sweet Cream’. There are NO flavorings added to this flavor- just the wonderful, delicate flavor of the 100% ‘grassed’ Jersey milk.

      It requires a little more skill and a little more time to manage dairy animals on pasture and stored forages alone, but less time and expense than growing and harvesting corn, or making corn silage. Even small amounts of grain decrease the CLA and beneficial Omega 3s in the milk and meat. Grains also reduce the ability of the animal to efficiently digest forages, as it is a different set of microbe that digest grain vs pasture or stored forages.

    • People should also be aware that most grain in the USA is sprayed with toxic chemical ‘dessicants’ to speed drying of the grain in the field by quickly killing the plants once the seeds (grain) is ripe.

      We’ve all heard about the high levels of chemical residue – glyphosate and others – found in oatmeal and cereals marketed for children. Even less care is taken of feed grains (except in some cases where the farm produced its own grain – yet a lot of those have literally bought into the ‘better farming through chemistry’ tapproach he chemical companies promote).

      Well managed pastures and hayfields (ideally the same fields) build soil fertility, reduce or eliminate soil erosion, increase yields, mitigate both floods and droughts, and increase biodiversity – both above and below the soil surface.

      Conventional grain farming is an industrial process that is highly destructive. When we buy our milk (and other foods) we get to vote with our dollars. Which method do we want to support?

  3. I wrote to Connolly Brothers about how they feed their cows and this is the reply I received from Chris Connolly: “Cows are on pasture during season. They are fed bailage and dry hay rest of year. We do feed some conventional grain based on quality of pasture and or bailage. We grow all our own hay and bailage utilizing composted cow manure and wood ash as nutrient sources. f you need any other info feel free to contact me.” What seasons of the year have you visited? Let me know if your experience does not jibe with this response.

    • The Connolly Brother are good people and do an excellent job of producing high quality milk from a mostly Jersey herd. While their cows are not 100% ‘grassfed’, quality forage is the majority of what their cows eat. While we prefer 100% ‘grassfed’ milk, their milk is excellent.

      It also comes in glass, which is better for the flavor of the milk and the environment. Reusing is the best form of recycling.

      Their ice cream is tasty, and they offer beef and lamb as well.
