Where can one buy buffalo milk?

I've tried looking every where and Margi has been quite kind in sending me info but I've hit a wall. Does anyone know where to buy buffalo (bufala) milk?

I think we covered this in another recent topic, about buffalo cheese? That the buffalo generally concerned when talking about dairy is water buffalo, and that American buffalo otherwise known as bison get rather testy when you pull on their udders, and aren't generally used for anything other than meat because you can just shoot them and don't need their cooperation unlike for dairy use. And finally, that we don't have very many water buffalo on US so buffalo diary products are scarce and difficult to get.

So I think the answer to the OP's query is that probably would better to be in Europe or Asia if you want buffalo dairy products.

Wasn't me. This is a new subject on this topic as far as I know. I know also there is a difference between bison and water buffalo. Not the same - not even close. There is a dairy in Vermont that recently moved to Canada but there is not link on the web site to follow up.

Maybe they could lead you in the right direction.

I hadn't meant to imply you were anything. I had meant to imply that everything I know about the subject was from the recent subject on buffalo cheese.

So are you looking for buffalo milk or bison milk? I'm just curious. Oh... and why?

It will be interesting to hear if you find water buffaloes in US or CA.

I did some looking about a year ago and hit the same wall you are hitting. If you find a source please post it.
