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. Greetings, everyone! My family recently moved to Grand Forks. The closest farm, Meant to Bleat, has unfortunately closed down. Does anyone know what would be the current closest options for us (in ND or MN), within a 1- or 2-hour drive?
    Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!

    • Are you looking for raw milk? If so, contact Bartlett Farms out of Bottineau. They have cow & herdshares. They are easy to find in the web.

  2. I am wondering if it’s legal to sell raw milk in ND? At one time the consumer had to own a share of the cow and pay for expenses in order to get a share of the milk. Has this changed? Thanks

  3. I am waiting on my listing to be posted- we are in Mayville. South of grand forks. If you’re still looking for raw milk this upcoming Spring, we will have 22 dairy goats freshening and will need to have their milk relocated! Shoot me an email if you’re interested. We could occasionally deliver to Fargo as well.

  4. Hi Angela,

    I make a drop to Menoken every Saturday am. Please privately email me and hopefully we can work something out.

    Deb McAvoy

    • Hi thank you for the response. Where in Menoken do you stop? Can we try the goat milk first? What do you charge for a share?

  5. Hi I am listed under Minnesota on this web site. My Busy Acre near Detroit Lakes. When you find the listing, call me. Shirley Bergquist.

  6. I have raw goat milk near Detroit Lakes. My name is Shirley Bergquist. I have a listing in Minnesota on this website. Look on the list of states at the top. Then call or email me. Thanks.

  7. We have goat shares and are located in Anamoose, ND with a drop once a week in Bismarck beginning in April, 2015.

    • I am very interested in goat shares! I have a baby girl that needs goat milk! I sent an email to you and have tried to call. I will try you again later. We are moving to Dickinson next this coming Sunday!
