Why? Because they have to drive so far to get raw milk, while we, here in Bucks County, have two three farms who produce raw milk, and dairy products made from raw milk like cheese, yogurt and ice cream.
In a New York magazine article dated April 18, Straight From the Cow’s Teat, Birchwood Farms in Newtown is mentioned, although they missed Hendricks Farm & Dairy, who also sell raw milk and dairy products from their Telford, PA location (on the border of Bucks and Montgomery Counties, near Souderton.) And, Flint Hill Farm (see below).
Birchwood Farms is sort of north of Newtown, on Brownsburg Road, right off Route 413. They have a store that sells, in addition to their organic dairy products, their own beef, pork and veal. Hendricks also sells grass-fed beef, lamb and rose veal; free-range, all natural poultry and eggs, nitrate-free uncured bacon, artisanal breads and charcuterie items, including an excellent Chicken Lemon Thyme Sausage that we just grilled last night. Two yums.
Update: A very astute reader reminded me that Flint Hill Farm in Coopersburg (north of Quakertown) also sells raw cow’s milk. My bad. I always think of them for their soft cheeses – goat and cow – which I buy at the Wrightstown Market (and Stockton Market). Their farm store is open to the public daily selling pastured eggs, goat and cow milk artisan cheeses, pasteurized yogurt, and fresh cream butter. They are a Certified Raw Milk Dairy through the PA Department of Agriculture.
