Unpasteurised Raw Milk UK
Raw, unpastuerised milk is a vitally important food that has nourished humans for many generations. We are indebted to a small band of committed and artisan milk prodcuers around the country who still produce and sell high quality raw, unpastuerised milk direct to the consumer. Our unique, interactive raw milk map allows you to quickly identify your closest, local supplier so that you can enjoy this delicious and nourishing food once again.
We have met, visited, tried and tasted the milk and dairy produced from many of the farms and suppliers listed, but cannot vouch for every producer. The listing found on this map are for information only and we advise strongly that interested consumers enquire effectively to ensure safety and satisfaction of milk production.

Green = High quality raw milk producer that meets all NFF criteria (see below)
Light green = Quality raw milk producer that meets some of the NFF criteria (see below)
Orange = Raw milk producer where NFF has insufficient known information to rate them otherwise
The questions that we ask before listing a supplier on the unpasteurised, raw milk map help us to determine what rating we give the producer. The questions include:
Do they have their license to sell raw milk from the FSA? A simple yes is needed.
What breed of cattle (or animal) is farmed? We prefer closed, traditional breed, pedigree herds, but are not restricted to this.
What feed is provided during summer and winter months? We prefer a dominant grass based diet with home grown silage or haylage in winter, but do not exclusively list only farms that meet this criteria.
What farming standards do they adhere to? Is the farm organic, biodynamic or do they hold another independently recognised farming standard such as Pasture fed Livestock Association.
Are there any routine anti-biotics used on the cattle? Almost unheard of within the raw milk producing community, but some farmers will separate sick cattle and give anti-biotics if there is illness. This may be a necessary action to care for an individual cow, but should not be a common practice across the herd.
Clean history and no disease within the herd? It is vital that the herd are free of TB and Brucellosis and are tested regularly. All unpasteurised milk tested for pathogens meets the required standards set by the regulatory bodies.
