Consumer

Consumers like you, all over North America, have begun an exodus from pasteurized fluid milk because of processed milk allergies and lactose intolerance. Soy milk, rice milk, hemp milk, and almond milk have all taken advantage of the fact that pasteurized milk is the most allergenic food in America.

Woman with Milk in FieldFueled by information shared on the Internet and by numerous studies and books recently published, consumers have begun to realize that raw milk is not allergenic and is generally very easy to digest for nearly everyone. It is pasteurization, the heating of milk, and intensive processing that causes the problems.

Locate a Raw Milk Farmer Near You

The Raw Milk Institute helps you locate conscientious farmers who have gone through our training program and have demonstrated, through testing, that their milk is consistently clean and safe. In states where the sale of raw milk is legal, these farmers are listed on our website.

RAWMI-Listed Farmers

RAWMI-listed farmers receive a portal on the RAWMI website. Here, you can view your farmer’s profile and reports that help you to make a good purchasing decision. All RAWMI-listed farmers report their bacteria counts to RAWMI and those bacteria counts are posted at their portal for all to review and appreciate. You can also find farmers’ individualized Food Safety Plans and links to their farms’ websites. Listing is a transparent tool that publicizes the efforts and care taken by the farmer to produce the very best raw milk possible.

Farmers who have gone to those lengths to be a safe producer and can demonstrate a safety track record should be rewarded. We encourage you to find RAWMI farmers who comply with RAWMI’s high quality and safety standards. If you already know a farmer, encourage him or her to participate in our training program!

Fixing the Broken Food Chain

When consumers connect directly to farmers, farms flourish and consumers are fully nourished.

This is all made possible by the generous contributions of raw milk consumers who wish to support sustainable farming practices and who want to secure universal access to raw milk. Please become a member of  RAWMI so this progress can continue to be made on your behalf.
