Raw Milk Network

Buying fresh, unpasteurized milk from a local farm is good for your family’s health, good for the farm and good for the environment. NOFA/Mass is working to make safe, healthy raw milk easily available in Massachusetts.

Customers who want raw milk from this area often have to drive for an hour or more to a raw milk dairy. By opening up the market through delivery, the raw milk market would serve more customers and increase the economic vitality of small dairies.
