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. I’m going to be moving to Deming soon and am really interested in raw goat’s milk. Any chance of finding any nearby???

  2. Just moved to Artesia, NM, and would love to find a source of good milk that hasn’t been pasteurized to here and gone. Any luck?

  3. Emily, your post is unanswered after two years, but I am wondering if you had any luck in finding a local provider for raw cows milk. I am beginning to pursue it myself just now, and prefer not to drive to Las Cruces for milk. I am located in Alamogordo. Thanks, Bambi

  4. In Roswell, Farmers Country Market might be open to selling raw milk.
    Address: Adobe Plaza, 2800 N Main St, Roswell, NM 88201
    Phone:(575) 623-4552

    Farmers is owned by the Fenn family, who also owns Fenns Country Market in Artesia. Ben, the manager of Fenns, has begun stocking several alternative foods – kombucha, kefir, etc – and listens to suggestions by customers. I don’t know if you’re willing to travel to Artesia, south of Roswell, but someone else from Artesia just posted an inquiry. I also have a few friends and acquaintances who would like raw milk. There may be more of us in the Artesia area than I realized.
    Address: 2001 W Main St, Artesia, NM 88210
    Phone:(575) 748-3357

    Sorry it has taken so long for me to respond, but comments posted are only emailed to me sporadically. I never received this post, but rather discovered it when attempting to respond to the post from the other Artesian.

    • Well, well, well . . . your post just showed up . . . it only took twelve days via cyberspace! Anyhow, I hope you will talk to Ben, manager of Fenns in Artesia, because he really does respond to requests from customers. Beyond Ben, a few weeks ago I talked to Ada, who stocks the dairy section, so a ‘raw milk’ seed has been planted. Also, ever since I began searching for raw milk potentially sold in the Artesia area, I have been pleasantly surprised to find that several other people would be interested.

      Fenns is as close to ‘Ma and Pa’ as you will find in Artesia. Not only is it family owned, it has managed to actually increase its business since Walmart moved in, just by showing it cares.

      Fenns owns four stores. Beyond the one in Artesia, it owns two in Roswell – in another post, I mentioned the one most likely to be willing to carry raw milk – and one in Carlsbad . . . La Tienda Thriftway.
      Address: 1301 S Canal St, Carlsbad, NM 88220
      Phone:(575) 887-5514

      Whatever the outcome, please know how much I appreciate your willingness to consider delivering raw milk to southeastern New Mexico.

  5. Hi! We’re moving to Artesia very soon! Did you ever find a source?? I’m really hoping we won’t have to give up raw milk. Thank! (509) 675-0241

    • Hi Alissa,

      No, I haven’t found one yet. However, I just responded to a question from De Smet Dairy, asking about nearby stores that might be willing to carry raw milk. I told them about Farmers Country Market in Roswell and Fenns Country Market in Artesia. It sounds like they’re willing to deliver raw milk to this area if someone is willing to carry it . . . that’s progress!

      In the meantime, Alissa, welcome to Artesia!

  6. Hi Susan, I found a place outside of Lubbock where you can participate in buying cow shares. They go to El Paso to deliver milk several times a month and pass through Seminole. If you’re still interested in raw milk, I would consider swapping driving duties with you if you’d like. They also have raw cream and butter available. Just picked up some milk today and it was really good! My number is 575-318-7912 if you would like to call or text me. My name is Kim Arnold.

  7. Susan, I live in Hobbs also and am trying to find a place for raw milk. Did you ever find one that is within an hour’s drive from here?

  8. Hi – I’ll be moving to Las Cruces in June. Did you find raw goat and cow milk? If so, can you please let me know where. Thanks!

    • Re: Buying raw milk in Las Cruces:
      Mountain View Market (SW corner of Idaho & El Paseo) gets a delivery on Tuesday evenings. Price as of 1/22/15 is $6.95 per half gallon.

  9. We tried to work with Cid’s to get our milk up there but no luck. If you can draw enough interest we will deliver to Taos. Please call us at (505) 916-0475

  10. Thanks for your willingness to help others find raw milk! Please ask your source to contact us if they’d like to be listed on this site. We make it a practice not to mention raw milk sources unless it’s okay with them, because the government uses this site to find and harass raw milk farmers and buying clubs. Thanks for understanding!

  13. Hi Derek,

    My wife and I as well as another lady have been teaming up to source milk from Cindy Gillen in Farmington (see listing above). We’re in Albuquerque and I’d be happy to help get you in on what we’re doing. We pickup from her every weekend and bring it back to Albuquerque, it’d just be a matter of logistics to figure out a routine to get you in the mix as well. Anyhow, give me a call if you’d be interested (505 two.two.eight 9609) and we can figure out what kind of volume you need, etc. Cindy sells her milk for $7/gallon.

    Thanks!

  15. All the sources we know about are listed. Check with the closest Weston A. Price Foundation chapter (http://www.westonaprice.org/local-chapters/find-local-chapter). Ask around at health food stores, and even call the other farmers in NM to see if they know of colleagues in your area. Consider forming a buying club where members take turns driving to get the milk. If you get enough interest you may be able to get a farmer to come to you.
