Where can I find a good reliable source of raw milk from grass fed cows in Montreal?

    Nowhere! It's illegal to sell raw milk! The only way is to find a farmer who is willing to give you some...famers in Montreal....mmmm.... good luck!

      It's illegal in Quebec. You should check out this thread as you're not the first to ask about it.

          You might want to actually read up on the differences between raw milk and cheese made from raw milk. It is not the "same difference" as you say. The process involved in the creation of cheese from raw milk neutralizes most, though not all, of the bacteria that are hazardous to humans in raw milk. As such, only pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems are cautioned not to consume cheese made with raw milk.

          You should try Craigslist and Kijiji, I've seen posts there! All farmers selling cowshares are in Ontario though.
