    There may be places closer, but here is one in Newtown PA. About 30 mins from Willow Grove.

      I think Maple Acres in Plymouth Meeting sells their own milk.

        +1 on Maple Acres. Easy jaunt from WG, and they have marvelous produce as well.

        Skippack Pike (rt 73) to Narcissa Road (about 2.5 miles)
        Left onto Narcissa & follow it all the way to the farm, about 2.2 miles.

          Is it raw milk?

            not sure if it's raw milk or not, tried to check but their website seems to be down. the phone number is (610) 828-7395

            they are also on facebook.

        Not sure about raw...but first thing came to mind is Merrymead farm store in Worcester and Freddy Hill Farms in Lansdale.

          Merrymead is not raw milk, but it is very good!

          I live in Hatboro and weekly make a trip to Birchwood in Newtown for milk, eggs and cheese. Worth the $ I pay in gas and the price I pay for the products.

            Your Family Cow in Chambersburg has wonderful raw milk. I know it's not close to you, but, their milk can be found in some groceries. They also deliver to drop points. You can look at the website to see if any are near you.

              Hendricks Farm and Dairy has wonderful raw milk!

              it's not exactly 'around the corner" from willow grove but it's not too long of a haul
              (bring cash.. they detest use of cards)

                One more place that I saw is DelVal Colleges Market. They get it from a local farm in Wrightstown. Do not know if it is stocked all the time but its good to know a retail outlet keeps it. http://tinyurl.com/bdypv9p

                  I think one of the farmers at the Glenside Farmer's Market has raw milk, but I'm not sure they are there in the winter -- they may set up at Primex in Glenside a couple weekends a month. Also, the grower's market in Chestnut Hill on Saturdays may have raw milk. They set up at Mermaid Lane and Germantown Ave. Glenside Farmer's Market sets up at the train station.
