Anybody have any good sources that they want to share?

I promise I'm not the mafia.

PM if you'd prefer.


Thank you!

Just wanted to say that it's legal in WA, isn't it? They sell raw milk at Huckleberries on the South hill in Spokane.

Yes, raw milk is legal in Washington, if it's from a state certified dairy farm. I get mine from Dungeness Creamery in Sequim, but don't know of any in Spokane.

There might also be local raw milk co-ops that you could get involved in.

Hello all,
I have been researching raw milk and came across Dungeness Valley products at our local Whole Foods. Since I've never tried it, I'm curious if you've had a good experiance with their products...ie, any sickness? They seem like a really great farm and I am planning on buying some this week but since I saw this post, I'd thought I might as well ask...
Sorry for hijacking the post

TIA

We don't have a Whole Foods in Spokane or CdA.

Fresh Abundance carries raw goat's milk, you might ask them to carry or find raw milk, they've been really helpful in finding things I've requested. They've probably been asked already and are trying to find a supplier. I know someone who gets it out in Airway Heights, but I don't know where or anything.

I love this place. They've been wonderful so far and they're growing like crazy.

Gavin'smom, I've been drinking their milk for a couple months, and never had any problems. My MIL has been drinking it since last fall, and has never had any problems either.

Also, yes... I'm pregnant, and drinking some raw milk. I figure it can't be any more dangerous than eating raw spinich, lettuce or sprouts... and that's what I'm being told to do!

Most of the time I use Dungeness's milk for cooking and baking. It gives everything a much better flavor.

Huh, I wonder if/how they actually enforce that... But I don't think it's illegal if you plan to use it for your pets.

I've talked to a local-to-me farm here...

* Athol: Homestead Heritage Farm, 428 Cider Rd., Athol, Idaho 83801. They are located between Coeur d' Alene and Sandpoint. They sell raw cows milk and feed organic alfalfa hay. Raw goats milk now available. Please call Bob & Katrina Byrum, phone (208) 683-2005.

The kiddos and I are planning to go visit them soon to just look around, no cow milk right now until Dolly gives birth. PM me if you want more details from my convo with Katrina (at least I assume that's who I talked to). They're just a few miles north of Silverwood though.
