Raw, unpasteurised milk is a vitally important food that has nourished humans for many generations. We are indebted to a small band of committed and artisan milk producers around the country who still produce and sell high quality raw, unpasteurised milk direct to the consumer. Our unique, interactive raw milk map allows you to quickly identify your closest, local supplier so that you can enjoy this delicious and nourishing food once again.
“Many people, upon taking their first sip of raw milk — dubbed real milk by some — are surprised at its richness and flavor. Raw milk from a high-quality source is a far cry from the pasteurised, homogenised version sold by most supermarkets.
You may scarcely believe it actually comes from the same animal.
In fact, raw milk and concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO) milk may come from different types of cows, with potential differences. A1 cows include the black and white breeds like Holsteins, which are commonly used by the large-scale industrial CAFOs.
A2 cows, such as Jerseys, are primarily used in European dairy products and may be used to produce some U.S. raw milk products (this isn’t a guarantee though; you’ll need to ask the farmer to be sure).
The evidence is far from conclusive, but observational evidence suggests many people have more difficulty digesting protein in the milk from A1 cows, which may also be associated with a range of health conditions.
Anecdotal evidence also suggests milk from A2 cows is creamier and may deliver nutrients more efficiently. This is, however, just one reason why some people make the switch to raw milk”. (extract from Mercola.com)

Questions that they ask before listing a supplier on the unpasteurised, raw milk map include:
Do they have their license to sell raw milk from the FSA? A simple yes is needed.
What breed of cattle (or animal) is farmed? We prefer closed, pedigree herds, but are not restricted to this.
Many Auto-immune conditions, degenerative bone and joint conditions have been proven to have links with either an imbalance or a bacterial overgrowth in the gut. To help improve this situationyou can add this home-made probiotic yogurt drink MAFMaker (see left) into your daily diet (available with the yogurt maker or without)
What feed is provided during summer and winter months? We prefer a dominant grass based diet with home grown silage or haylage in winter, but do not exclusively list only farms that meet this criteria.
What farming standards do they adhere to? Is the farm organic, biodynamic or do they hold another independently recognised farming standard such as Pasture fed Livestock Association.
Are there any routine anti-biotics used on the cattle? Almost unheard of within the raw milk producing community, but some farmers will separate sick cattle and give anti-biotics if there is illness. This may be a necessary action to care for an individual cow, but should not be a common practice across the herd.
