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.

92 thoughts on “North Carolina

  1. I am looking for milk as close to Hickory, NC as possible, and when I look in the list for Statesville, as someone suggested in the comments, I don’t see Statesville. Can someone help? Thank you in advance!

  2. I bought milk from Milky Way Farm when I lived in Charlotte. However, once I discovered what SCC meant (somatic cell count) I switched to another milk producer in SC as their SCC was MUCH lower than Milky Way Farm’s. Be aware of what SCC means, the effect it has on the milk and on those who drink it. I believe the state of SC publishes the SCC on every producer or at least they did when I lived there. Check it out before you buy.

  3. Miller’s Biodiversity Farm is listed on this page, the page for North Carolina. It should not be. It’s in New York. The difference is “NY”nstead of “NC.”

  4. I think the listing for Miller’s Organic Farm Healthy Food Club pickup in CHarlotte is out of date. I’ve been a customer at Miller’s for a long time and have their stuff shipped to me directly. However, they told they only have a pickup site in Raleigh/Durham area and some other area that is far from Charlotte. As of now there is no pickup area in Charlotte as they say there is not yet enough customers here. I’d love to work to have one available in Charlotte to help save on shipping costs.

  5. Hello Ashley,
    I live in Morrisville, NC. I am willing to buy Guernsey milk. Please let me know how large order are you looking for? Will you be able to delivery it one place? Please email me back. Thanks

  6. We have raw milk for $6 a gallon in Gastonia (Kings Mountain side). Fed 99% GMO free diet. 704-904-4481 if interested. Whispering Hope Farm
    We sell raw milk for animal consumption only as North Carolina law.

  7. Please encourage the Blairsville source to contact webmaster@realmilk.com if they would like to be listed on this site. We don’t mention sources even in comments, that haven’t agreed to be listed because some cannot take the additional demand this site brings and some want their privacy, or not to come to the attention of government harassers. Thanks!

  8. The site is maintained by one person in Virginia (me, and incidentally I have an unrelated full time job). I try to update listings weekly, but only manage to moderate comments infrequently. Sometimes farmers will reply to people looking for products, but I have to vet every one of those and make sure the farmer has a listing, which slows down approval of their comments by a huge margin. I find the most beneficial use of the comments on the state listings is to show farmers what a huge demand there is. Your best bet for finding raw milk is to use the listings on this page and call farmers looking for options near you. Keep in mind that many people in many parts of the country form driving clubs and take turns driving some distance to pick up raw milk. You may also contact the closest local chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation; link is at the top of the page in the list of notices. They sometimes know of sources that prefer not to be listed on this site, either because they don’t want the state attention being listed here brings, or they simply can’t meet the demand being listed here brings, and want to grow more slowly by word of mouth.

  9. Creeks Edge Family Farm which is located in Currie, NC, right outside of Wilmington, NC has raw Jersey cow milk. See the listing above for more information

  10. Rebekah, it is only legal to sell raw milk in NC for “pet consumption.” If you want to buy raw milk for human consumption you will need to purchase from South Carolina.

  11. I live in Winston Salem also, and would love to know of a closer vendor other than in the Raleigh/Charlotte area – any suggestions? Thank you so much! 🙂

  12. You probably already figured it out since this post is a year old, but here is the website for the Miller Farms (North Carolina Farm Fresh Foods): http://www.ncfarmfreshfood.com/

    They sell a good variety of the basics – everything organic, animals treated amazingly and fed naturally and they have raw organic milks and creams.

  13. Do you have a website or phone number for the EC buying club? We are moving to the Ecity area and would love to find a local(ish) farm and continue to get raw milk.

  14. Ditto! I know that there is a store in Myrtle Beach that has it. Anyone know of anyone who delivers to the Wilmington or Jacksonville area?

  15. As much as I don’t like the government in my business, you really need to study the history of milk and the diseases that it used to carry.. If not for pasteurization, many many millions of people would have been killed by these diseases(also, if the milk crosses a state line, then the federal government does have authority). Which is why the law was passed. Of course most of those diseases have been wiped out in cows now, so the need for the stringent rules is basically gone. But that doesn’t change the fact of what things used to be like.

    • We have a number of articles on this site about the history of milk and the history of the push for pasteurization. It is true there are diseases cows can have that are dangerous for humans, however, most of the risk came during the late 19th and early 20th centuries when cities were expanding and dairies were placed in the cities or on the outskirts and the cows were in crowded, filthy conditions. They were standing in their excrement, and fed inappropriate feed, including spent mash from distilleries (the dairies were often located next to the distilleries to take advantage of this waste product). Sick cows led to dangerous milk. Medical authorities agreed on the need for pasteurization for THIS type of milk, at least until it was better understood why the milk was making people sick (especially infants who sometimes died from this infected milk). “Certified raw milk” was considered the superior choice for health and nutrition. The later push for universal pasteurization fed on FEARS of illness, but the real reason the emerging large, consolidated milk processors wanted this was because it was cheaper for them. They could crowd and stress the cows and overbreed them to produce enormous quantities of milk, and then just pasteurize it to “ensure” people wouldn’t get sick. But that doesn’t mean that kind of milk was health promoting. (And pasteurization also didn’t “ensure” it was safe, because there have been a number of outbreaks of foodborne illness from pasteurized milk over the years.)

      There is still a need for stringent rules about how milk is produced. On this site we also talk about how to ensure safe, clean raw milk. The Raw Milk Institute (RAWMI) has also been established to provide guidance and standards for raw milk dairies. Cows should be tested for the various diseases such as tuberculosis, Johne’s, and others. Milking should be done with care, including cleaning the udder prior, milking directly into stainless steel containers, and chilling the milk immediately. (There is more to it; these are the broad strokes.) Properly handled raw milk from properly raised cows is extremely safe. CDC data shows that all milk, raw or pasteurized, is less likely to be a vector for foodborne illness than many common foods like raw produce and deli meats, and that raw milk is safer than pasteurized. We provide analysis of the CDC data and others studies under the “Key Document” link in the left navigation.

  16. Eat Wild . com might be another website that could help you or anyone else find pastured eggs, cows, pork. Contact the farmers to ask about non-GMO feed if they grain feed (unless you’re allergic to corn, soy and wheat or any other grain they would use then you just want the ‘pasture raised and pasture finished’ otherwise you might see ‘pasture raised and grain finished’.) I’ve contacted farmers in my area of Asheville & one of them said they’re trying to switch over to non-GMO feed for their chickens and hogs so don’t just read something & say ‘Well, that’s it.’ Contact them through Facebook or call them!

    • This farm also sells at the Poplar Grove farmer’s market – Hampstead (Wilmington area): Nature’s Way Farm, Tina Moller, 115 Crystal Ct., phone: 910-270-3036, email: tnaturesway@aol.com, web: natureswayfarmandseafood.com. Alpine dairy goats, small herd has pasture and lespedeza hay. Small licensed farmstead has a variety of goat cheeses, and raw milk for animal use. Kids for sale in spring, goat milk soaps.

  17. Ted, I also live in Murphy. We buy our milk from Mountain Valley Farm in Ellijay, Ga. It’s the closest place we’ve found.

    • Leah, are you still going to Dalton for milk. I have a friend in Murphy and I would love to put her in touch with you – maybe you all could trade off or go together?

  18. Hi, I am would like to know if there are any milk farmers in my area that sell raw milk? Davidson,Kannapolis, concord NC
    Thank you

      • Milky Way cows are fed commercial grain which contains GMO corn and wheat. Ask the farmer the right questions before you consume just any raw milk. Just because it is advertised as pastured, does not mean that the cows are not supplemented with commercial grain.

      • I agree. Milky Way has fantastic milk – we’ve been getting it for years. Yes, the cows do get a small amount of grain. Please see their website for more information before you decide.

  19. Hello, I do not find a “Miller Farms” on the North Carolina page. There is a Miller Farms on the Texas page. Regardless, you should contact the farmer directly, not via this website. This site provides information about raw milk and listings of farms, clubs, and stores where you can get raw milk. Whatever info is listed here is all I have.
