Where can I find raw milk in/around north Dallas, TX?

I recently moved Allen, Texas from Europe and interested in buying raw milk. Do you know any place I can buy?

  1. I am not sure if I am right, but I think it is illegal to sell raw milk in most jurisdictions in the United States. I read an article a few months ago about a guy in the San Franciso area that was defying the law and selling it. I am sure there are others on this board that know the answer.

      My understanding is that farmers are allowed to sell it directly. I heard that some require you to sign a waiver.

      It's also not unusual for farms to be outside any city limits and therefore to be subject to fewer regulations in general. I remember talking to one farmer who also serves prepared food at her little store who kept calling people trying to find out what she needed to comply with, and was surprised how little there was if you only have the county and state to deal with.

        It is not legal to sell unpasteurized milk in the USA for human consumption. Unpasteurized milk is sold with a label say it is being sold for animal consumption. It is not illegal for a human to consume unpasteurized milk.

          You can buy directly from the farmer and it is not labelled for animal consumption. I personally have never seen any milk that was labelled for animal consumption.

            Not true. Completely legal down here in Texas. We buy it from small farms all the time. Great stuff!!!

        2. You can find raw goats milk. Raw cows milk is harder. You would certainly have to go to a farm to buy it. It's generally illegal to transport it for sales purposes. I'd ask good earth organic, la cuesta, and lucky layla.

            I have asked la cuesta and Rehobath Farms. Both will put people on a list for raw goat's milk but they do not always have it. You absolutely have to go to the farms to get raw milk, none will bring it to the markets because of the law. Some of the farms at Texas Meats (includes Rehobath Farms) down at the Dallas Farmers' Market sometimes have raw cow's milk available at their farms. When the Mckinney market reopens (I believe it is now closed for the season but am not sure), you should check there. In Allen you are relatively close to parts of East Texas (like Greenville) where there are still some dairy farms.

            1. Thank you all for posts. I will check these farms and will let you know what I learn.

                Hi Attila,
                I have just moved to Allen 2 weeks ago, and I am also looking for somewhere to buy raw goat's milk. Did you ever find a place that sold it near here?

                    Agape oaks says they do not currently sell raw milk.
                    Just looking into these because my infant is turning 1 year old so I intend on feeding her raw goats milk and raw cows milk since they both contain some nutrients that the other does not.
                    Has anyone purchased from this farm before?

                        I have. It tasted off and I have had really good raw milk, so it's not that I'm not used to raw milk. It didn't keep as well as others I have had.

                2. Here is an existing co-op for raw milk in your area. The dairy they use is very high quality. I personally drink the milk from the nors dairy daily.
