RAW MILK FOR SALE?! In the MINOT AREA?! Yes! Dreams really do come true!
Ok, first things first,
Is Raw Milk legal to sell in North Dakota?
YES!!!!! As of August 1, 2023, Raw milk is now legal to sell to INFORMED Consumers! This means, we the farmers only sell directly to people who want to drink our raw milk and who understand the risks and benefits. We want people to clearly understand that raw milk is NOT pasteurized. It is straight from the cow. Consuming Raw Milk is not advised by any government agency, but do with that what you will. We want people to do their own research (we will answer as many questions as you have) before making the choice to consumer raw milk.
ND Century Code:
4.1-25-40. Shared animal ownership agreement - Raw milk. It is not a violation of this chapter to transfer or obtain raw milk under a shared animal ownership agreement.

The seller shall only sell milk within this state. The sale may not involve interstate commerce. Raw milk may not be donated. 3. A farm selling raw milk under the provisions of this section is not subject to any other provision of this chapter, chapters 4.1-05, 4.1-26, 19-02.1, or 23-9, or title 64.
Now that we know it is legal and you have made the choice to start the Raw Milk journey, here is what we offer:
WHOLE RAW MILK:
This is the milk that comes straight from the cow with cream that rises to the top. Start here!
1 Gallon: $20 (Includes 2 $3 jar deposits)
1/2 Gallon: $10 (Includes $3 jar deposit)
Milk after the cream has been skimmed off. Similar to a 1% or 2% consistency. This is GREAT for making yogurt, Mozzarella Cheese, or for drinking if you don’t like the thicker consistency of whole.
1 Gallon: $14 (includes 2 $3 jar deposits)
1/2 Gallon: $7 (includes $3 jar deposit)
Cream that has been separated out. It is like a very heavy whipping cream. Imagine cream so thick, you have to scoop it! Basically it’s a small taste of heaven in a jar! Make effortless whipped cream, or try your hand at fresh butter!
1 Pint: $10 (includes jar deposit)
ALL JARS REQUIRE A $3 DEPOSIT OR BRING YOUR OWN 1/2 Gallon Wide Mouth Ball Mason jars to exchange and waive the deposit.
ALL JARS and LIDS MUST BE RETURNED CLEANED! We will sanitize them, but I very much appreciate them being CLEAN!
All milk products are for FARM PICK UP. We are located 20 minutes west of Minot near Foxholm. After your initial purchase, we can look into drop points that may be close to you. Several of our weekly members have worked out pick up among themselves to collaborate and save a trip.
At this time, I do not offer delivery!
If after your initial purchase you would like to join our weekly membership, I will set you up with a pick up day that works for both of us.
- Members always get TOP PRIORITY in getting their milk orders filled each week.
- I send out monthly invoices which can be automatically paid.
- We can work out a local drop/carpool pickup if other members are close to you.
- All jar deposits are included in the membership fee. (One time fee instead of a per jar fee)
- Members receive secondary gallons at a discounted rate of $12/Gallon. (Great for large families!)
- This membership is for people who want a consistent weekly supply. This is NOT for people who only want a jar of milk once a month.
If you decide this is something you would like to try, please complete the check out process, or contact Grace for more information. (701)578-4659.
