Raw goat milk in Orange County

  • 6
  • Share

Does anyone know how I can get raw goat milk in Orange County or somewhere close to Orange County. My daughter has severe eczema symptoms as a baby and now she about 95% healed. I would like her to drink raw goat milk because of protein in the goat milk is much easier to digest but I have a really hard time to find a place that sells raw goat milk. The law doesn't allow selling raw goat milk doesn't have my cause.

But I believe there are people who actually drink raw goat milk in California and not all of them go to Rawesome to get their raw goat milk. It is a good drive from Orange County to Rawesome for us. But if we can't get it elsewhere then we will go there.

I figure I ask the folks here for information. There are some that label their raw goat milk for "pet consumption". Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Tom

  1. You might check with some of these folks to see if they can direct you: http://www.realmilk.com/where1.html#ca

      I have been trying to contact those folks for a few days now and pretty much no luck so far. But I'll keep trying. Thanks

      I do believe there are folks out there that have goats in Orange County or nearby and sell the milk to others because they just can't consume all of it. But I just don't know how to go about it.

        How about this: http://heavenlyacre.com/home.php I don't think they sell the milk, but they may well know who does.

    2. Have you asked at Mother's Market? If not I would go to one of the goat cheese vendors at the Irvine Saturday farmers' Market and ask.

        Mother's Market has a lot of good stuffs but the Raw Organic (or not) Goat milk is something that they don't carry. I'll check out the Irvine famers' market on Saturday. Why not! Thanks

        I believe it is an underground market, but I just don't really know how to get some contact. I called Apple Valley and left a message but I think people don't really want to sell to you if they don't know you for obvious reason, the law forbids selling raw goat milk. I wonder why the goats get the short end of the stick in California whereas other states can consume raw goat milk.

      2. Hi Tom,

        Don't know if you've had any luck finding raw goat's milk, but the Santa Ana Mother's Market store has some. It's bottled by Claravale and it's right next to the raw whole cow's milk. I think it may be a new addition, since I didn't notice it before. I'm not sure if the other Mother's Markets have it but you could call ahead. Hope this helps.

        Best of luck,

        Erin
