Raw Milk Ireland

This website aims to educate consumers, sellers and producers of raw milk and to provide a link between farmers and their customers.
Raw Milk Ireland was originally formed as a campaign to prevent a proposed ban of raw milk, however the organisation has since evolved and now represents a number of farmers across the Island who have decided to work together on regulatory issues,
to share knowledge with each other and with the public and to promote safe production.
We also continue to work to protect consumer's right to choice and to ensure that fair and proportionate regulations are in place for raw milk in Ireland.

WINTER 2018 NEWS: New Guidelines Introduced for Raw Milk

New Guidelines for the production and sale of raw milk in Ireland have now been finalised.
We have come a long way from 2011 when the re-introduction of a ban on the sale of raw milk in Ireland seemed inevitable.
This document sets out guidelines for farmers selling raw milk and has been developed in consultation with Department of Agriculture and FSAI.
The publication of these guidelines is a huge step forward for Irish Raw Milk farmers and we are delighted to have been able to have jointly fostered a spirit of cooperation working with rather than against the authorities.
