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 live in Huntsville, AL and am very interested in herd share real milk from “spoiled” cows. I want to make my own butter for baking and I believe the quality of “natural” treated cows is better for our earth. Is there anyone that delivers to Huntsville or Madison or is fairly close to Ardmore with cow shares available.

    Thanks much

  2. Hi! I am from Cordova TN and i am looking to buy raw cow milk, do you know anyone selling in near by area of Cordova or Memphis, TN?

  3. Please Help ! Desperately looking for Raw Milk near Kodak TN – Cruze Farm is not longer providing Raw Milk, My child needs Raw Milk again because store bought milk creates havoc on her digestive system. The Raw milk solved all our issues but all the area dairy farms have gone out of business.

  4. If anyone in the Crossville area is looking to purchase raw milk but doesn’t want to drive far, let me know. I have a share with Fall Creek Farms and currently drive to Cookeville for Saturday morning pick up. I would be more than willing to pick up your milk and bring it back to Crossville. 🙂

  5. I live in bulls gap and looking to get raw lamancha milk. Anyone please let me know who comes this way with time place and location.

  6. Are you wanting to purchase a cow or just milk? we have been breeding to A2 bulls only and have a few A2/A2 cows.

  7. In Memphis every other Sat at the Tsunami Farmers Market on South Cooper. Goat and Cow milk
    for pet food. We are grade A dairy. Cheese,rabbits,free range eggs. Oldest grade A goat dairy in TN. Phone # 931 722-goat

    • I apologize if I sound ignorant about this subject, but you said “for pet food;” are these products for human consumption, or does that have to be stated in order to be politically correct? I remember reading somewhere on the web that a company has to state that, so I’m curious. Also, I’m right outside of Memphis – about 40 to 45 mins. away, so driving to South Cooper would be awesome. I’m ONLY interested in safe raw cow’s milk, eggs, cheese, butter and the like. Thanks!

    • I keep hearing rumors and “well they were there” all the time about cows’ milk and butter…familiar with the market on Cooper but just don’t go there.
      Exactly when and where are you there so I can be there too….
      Why is it necessary to have my own glass bottles? Do you require?

  8. There are Amish on highway 115 (Oakgrove to Pembroke) with signs up for ‘free range chickens and eggs’. I think they have ducks and rabbits also. Wish we had a few more options around Clarkville area though!

    • We buy chickens, rabbits. and eggs from them. Eggs are $2 a dozen or $4.50 for a flat. Flats are 30 eggs. Chickens run about $2 a pound and I don’t remember what the rabbits run.

  9. Where are you located? I have a PhD in finance and am a professor in Memphis. I would be very interested in either buying raw milk or bartering.

    • I am in Hendersonville too and am looking for raw milk. I need something very convenient and close to here and possible delivery. If you find something, would you please let me know.

  10. No complaints, none! This is the best, fresh, whole food around. Worth every dime for fresh milk and butter!
