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 Arcadia, WI which is 45 miles South of Eau Claire and 45 miles north of LaCtosse…it is also 30 miles from Winona MN. If anyone knows of any raw milk, raw butter, or raw cheese farmers in these areas, I would appreciate your contacting me.

    I would also like to find a source of pastures fertile eggs that are organic and not fed any corn or soy. No I do not want to hatch them. If you ever read the book
    We want to live – The Primal Diet by Aajonus Vonderplanitz, he talks about how eating these, along with the raw milk and cheese are amazing for you.

    Would like to also find a source of unheated honey… which according to him is different than raw honey … whereas raw honey is actually heated, unheated honey is never heated above the temp in a behive.

  2. Please call me at 6 zero 8 221-8696. I am the local chapter leader for Madison and know of a source that delivers to Waukesha.

  3. Raw goat’s and cow’s milk available. Goats are fed soy-free, organic, non-GMO feed. Jersey cow is entirely grass-fed. In the Hartford, WI area.

  4. Anything near lacrosse that has been found? There is 1 by Brownsville which is close but I’m having a hard time adjusting to grass fed raw milk flavor

  5. Does anyone know where I can get raw milk? I live in bay view (milwaukee). Hopefully someone within 20 to 30 min drive at the most.

  6. Hey,wondering did you find place with raw milk,I’m exhausted from browsing internet, calling farms and emailing without any result

  7. To all Wisconsin folks,
    There are some private clubs which you can join in order to have a share in a cow and its milk production. This is one way to have legal access to raw milk in Wisconsin. But it is still unpredictable because these clubs can be targeted by the authorities. Google for court cases.

    Another alternative is to find a farmer with a cow and work out a way for him to GIVE you some milk. My Amish friend gives me milk as a thank you for when I help her out. Maybe I give her a ride to the store. Or I give her my extra tomatoes from my garden. Or I pick up something she needs when I drive down to Madison. Or I keep something in my freezer for her. There are ways to have access to raw milk legally if you are creative.

  8. Katrina, does your invitation extend to others in the same situation? I also live in La Crosse and, would like to find a source for raw milk. Thanks.

  9. Katrina,

    I’m looking for raw milk in the La Crosse area. Do you have any leads? I used to get it when I lived in viroqua, but now I’m in La Crosse and looking for something closer.

  10. You can call me at 6 zero 8 221-8696. I am the local chapter leader for Madison and know of a source that delivers to Janesville.

  11. Katrina- my family is newly relocated to the sparta area and I’m wanting to find a good source of milk for my family. Is there any info you can give me to find a good source?

  12. the name of the raw mile supplier has been retracted from your comment..could you email me? I would greatly appreciate this!!

  13. Sorry for the delayed response. Thanks for your comment. Please encourage that farm to contact us and be listed here. We only list farms, or mention them in comments, if they’ve agreed to be listed here. Too often this site is used by gov’t agencies to find and harass farmers! Thanks for understanding.

  14. Hi there , es this is the “daily State” smile. I’m looking for raw cows milk and janesville is pretty close to waukesha. could you please email me the farm in Janesville. thanks. or call me @ 414-397-3902. antoinette.

  15. The reason you can’t find raw milk suppliers in Wisconsin is ecause it is illegal to sell raw milk in Wisconsin. bhttp://datcp.wi.gov/Food/Raw_Milk/FAQs/
    This link will take you to the Wisconsin Department of ag, trade, and consumer protection. So if you find a farm that will sell you raw milk in Wisconsin keep it quiet because they can get into some serious trouble. Best solution is to buy a cow because you can drink your own raw milk you just can’t sell it to anyone. Good Luck.

  16. Karen ~ I’m SO GLAD I SAW YOUR POST!!!! I live in Onalaska and I’m in the same situation. If you have any luck locating a raw milk source would you please share the information with me. I can no longer nurse my 8 month old daughter and feel so unhappy about having to give her powdered formula with chemicals in it.

  17. Most people can get raw cheese. Health food stores, gourmet stores, and most large grocery stores carry some selection of raw cheeses. The milk proteins are fragile and particularly vulnerable to pasteurization, but the fat is less so. So, pasteurized high fat dairy products like butter and cream are good alternatives. Organic, non-homogenized, low-temperature pasteurized milk is available in some stores. It depends in part on any sensitivity you may have to lactose or casein, too. Some people cannot tolerate pasteurized milk at all but they can have raw milk. You may have to experiment.

    • When buying raw cheese, find out the temperature that the milk is heated to. Some cheeses labeled “raw” are actually made from milk that has been heated to just below the pasteurizing point. If the temperature is above 105 or so, it is not truly raw. If you can only get pasteurized milk, culture it into kefir or yogurt. Look for organic non-homogenized pasteurized milk.

        • There’s a facebook group for sharing kefir grains and starters. Don’t know the name right off, but maybe search for it?

        • I would like to give you my KEFIR GRAINS in exchange for your WATER KEFIR GRAINS. Or I can give you GREAT CELANDINE plants (they say are helpful to clean the body of parasites, viruses, cancer etc., but you need to know how to use it, because the plant is poisonous in certain amounts).
