Raw Milk in Australia

by Paleo Rob on 27/08/2010

According to Food Standards Australia

“Raw milk is milk that has not undergone a heat treatment process such as pasteurisation or thermisation to kill pathogenic bacteria.”

To put it simply raw cows milk is ILLEGAL to sell for consumption in all states and territories in Australia. The government believes they know what’s best for us, even though there are many benefits in drinking raw milk.Cow

Unhomogenized milk is legal for sale, but I doubt you will find it in the grocery store. Instead head to your local farmers markets, and I am sure you will find someone selling it (and if its like where I live, it sell FAST).

Raw milk IS however available for sale as a natural bathing product, and if you wish to use it as such, I have included a list of locations on where to buy raw milk in Australia. I can’t verify all of these, so if I have wrong information or you want to add another to the list please email me

I will leave you with a quote from one of my idles, and hopefully it will make you think.

“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”

Hi, Rob, there is a health food shop on Darby St, Newcastle that stocks Cleopatra’s bath milk and raw goats milk. They don’t always have enough though.

There is also a roadside shop at a dairy at Glen Martin or Glen Williams (forget which), which is a small town near Dungog NSW (actually closer to Clarence Town if you know where that is). The shop is just a shed on the road side apparently. Never been there it, but my old man told me about it. They sell raw jersey milk that is thick with cream.

I think the name of that shop on Darby St is Natural Tucker.

Also, very apt Jefferson quote. We’ve had 70 years to find out exactly how true it is.

Swampy’s Real Milk can be found in various organic stores around Melbourne, VIC – Swampy is based in Warrnambool, and he’s a truly lovely bloke that loves his farm and his animals. His eggs are AMAZING, and he’ll soon be producing butter! The best way to get in touch is to ask at your local organic store. Mine is Organically Yours in Balwyn, and they usually have a good supply of milk after Swampy makes his delivery on Wednesday afternoon.

Just letting you know the Rainbow Ridge website is no more. I will call them tomorrow and see it *they* are no more too, but still, the website is gone.

It’s not raw, but Woolworths/Coles and most quality grocers in SA sell BD-Paris Creak Farms products and they are all organic and not homogenized. And taste fantastic. Although not really primal, I love their Vanilla & Honey yoghurt.
