Raw Milk & Long Island

Scott_R Mar 21, 2009 09:39 AM

I realize there's no place I can get it out here, as NY restricts raw milk sales to farms. But what be the closest place upstate (or CT, where stores can sell it)?

Cow's milk specifically.

      Yes. But I don't know the Connecticut towns well enough to tell how close the farms are, and the list doesn't say which STORES in CT sell it--or, to the extent it does (when they mention a particular farm's retailers), only in a relatively general way. The closest place I saw in NY is Ottsville, about 2 hours from LI, and I wasn't sure if I'd missed something.

      Try Makinajian's on Cuba Hill Rd, Huntington.

        They have milk? The only listings I see for them is as a poultry farm. This is their web site:

        There's a Farmers Market on Saturday's in Greenwhich, Ct. I believe off 95 exit 3, starting again in May.
        I believe Beaver Brook Farm sells raw milk there.

          OK thanks; I guess waiting for May is the thing to do.
