Raw Milk Dairy Weekend

Ever wondered what the big fuss is about RAW MILK? Come see for yourself. A bunch of Massachusetts Raw Milk Farms are opening their doors for farm tours, milking demonstrations, and of course, raw milk for purchase! The Boston-area farms include: Eastleigh Farm in Framingham (Saturday and Sunday open from 1:00-7:00, milking at 6:00pm) Herb Hill Micro-Dairy (goats) in Andover (Saturday - tours at 10:30 and 12:30) Oake Knoll Ayrshires in Foxboro (Saturday - open 12:00 noon-4:00 pm)

I will probably be heading out to one of the three, so if anyone needs a ride that weekend, from the Boston area, let me know. I have had milk from Herb Hill and from Eastleigh. It's cool, fresh, rich in flavor and delicious. (And I lived to tell about it!) Come see what you've been missing!!

    I went to Eastleigh Farm weith my daugther for the evening milking. We had a hayride and watched the sun go down over the hills, met some friendly cows, and picked up milk from that morning's milking--amazing. My husband said "it has a particular taste"--YES , the taste of green grass and contented cows (along with a lot of lucious milkfat...)!

    I went to Herb Hill. Lovely people, fantastic goats. I bought some fresh goat milk, too. Haven't tried it yet. Definitely worth the trip out to Andover!

    Hi Everyone - Per my conversation below with Catherine...I will be heading to Andover, to the Herb Hill Micro Dairy, in time for their 12:30 milking demonstration. Lucy, the owner is just great, and I've bought her milk before. If you want, meet at my house at 11:15, and we'll drive up together. I'm right in Waltham, just at Route 95. Address is 1449 Main Street (Archstone Bear Hill, on Route 117) in Waltham. Email me for my cell, if you want it. If you want to go somewhere else, feel free!

    I love raw milk! My extended family lives on a sheep farm in Vermont and I love getting our fresh, raw milk from the dairy a few miles down the road! Would love to live about raw milk in MA
