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 am looking where I can get raw milk in Williams county, OH. Which is the furthermost corner of Northwest Ohio.

  2. Hi, guys! Anything for raw, non-homogenized whole milk from grass-fed cows (even better if organic) near Zanesville, OH, or that would ship to Zanesville? Miller Diversity Farm’s shipping is kind of steep, and I’m wanting to see if I have closer/less expensive options. Email me at acrumbaker7@hotmail.com if it’s a listing that can’t be posted on this page! Thank you!!

  3. Hello, We are looking for a herd share/raw milk near Canfield, Ohio (just west of Youngstown). It seems like the closet is to drive to Pittsburgh. Any other suggestions would be very much appreciated!

  4. Does raw cows milk taste different than pasteurized? Would like to start giving raw milk to my family, But wondering if they’ll like the taste enough to make this switch. Also does goats.milk taste very different from cows milk? Also, what’s the average cost per gallon for raw milk? We go through about 2-3 gallons per week. I’m in Columbus – northwest side – looking for a raw milk sorce. Thank you!

    • To me, raw milk varies in taste more than pasteurized. It has more of the “terroir” as they say about wine–the soil, the plants, the sun and rain…all those things change the taste of the milk. And it varies in taste as it ages. It’s still safe to drink but becomes sour, like sour cream, as days go by (because the good bacteria in the raw milk are eating the milk sugars little by little, and producing by products so that changes the taste). Also, I find in spring and fall when wild onions are fast growing and grass not at much, the milk takes on an oniony taste and so I skip it for several weeks at that time.

      Goat’s milk does taste somewhat different, but this also varies widely by type of goat, and all the factors same for cows…soil, plants, sun, rain.

      Seems like you will want to do a taste test with your family–some people are “super tasters & smellers” and others can’t tell one milk from the next. If they don’t like the first kind, try another farmer, they can vary. And keep the spring/fall oniony thing in mind!

      I can’t speak to the average cost of a gallon of raw milk in your area; you can look on this page for the farms closest to you to get an idea.

  7. I’m looking for raw goat milk in this area also. Sheep milk would probably be fine as well. We’re currently near Middletown, soon moving to Wilmington. I’m willing to drive quite a way to get this because I have 2 daughters who can’t drink cows milk. If anyone knows of anything available, I would greatly appreciate it. I check this site frequently, or you can email me at slemons@cinci.rr.com.

  8. Thanks for your comment. Because listings are voluntary and there are hundreds (or more) on this site, it’s simply not possible for us to monitor if/when a provider no longer offers raw milk products (or if they relocate or change their contact info) unless they let us know. We will remove the Trinity Acres listing.

  9. In Ohio, it is illegal to SELL raw milk. But it is NOT illegal to DRINK raw milk–in Ohio or any state. So, how can you get raw milk to drink if you can’t buy it? You buy your own cow, or a share in a cow or herd of cows. It is definitely legal to buy a cow or a share in a cow! Since most people do not live on farms, buying a herdshare and paying the farmer to take care of your cows and milk them for you is the most convenient option. This is legal in Ohio and most states–it’s a very old type of legal arrangement, going back centuries in Europe.

      • It is illegal to sell raw milk in the state of Ohio, and farmer doing so even as pet food or hobby milk is taking a huge risk as they could very easily lose their farm if caught or if someone were to get sick. I personally have no issues if you want to drink raw milk, but am not going to risk losing my farm over it.

        • Sir,

          I called the Ohio Dept. of Health and I was told that IF there is a Herd Sharing Agreement between supplier and the consumer, the department won’t get involved. It seems this is implausible and you have only my word, but for what it’s worth, this was their reply to me personally over the phone. Call them and run this note by them. You should/may get the same answer.
