Milk and milk products have been part of the human diet for a very long time. In fact, this can be traced back to biblical times. However, industrialization brought many changes to the “foods” we eat and these changes impacted milk too.
Unheated, raw milk contains so much nutrition that it can actually be considered a food all by itself. One could consume nothing but raw milk and still remain well nourished.
In this section we will learn:
- The History of Raw Milk
- Is Raw Milk Safe
- Benefits of Raw Milk & Dangers of Pasteurized Milk
- The Nutritional Content of Raw Milk

Slide/Notes Pages – For Note Taking
- Find your closest chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation and get a copy of the farm list.
- Contact farmers on the farm list to locate a source of raw milk and dairy products.
- Schedule a trip to meet and visit with a local farm and learn how they raise their dairy animals. If you like what you see and hear, take home some raw dairy and add it into your favorite recipes or enjoy a nice cold glass of raw milk! (Homemade Mac & Cheese or homemade ice cream are both kid friendly ideas!!)
