Welcome to De Smet Dairy and Creamery
We are New Mexico’s only Grade A, dairy farm and bottling facility for raw milk. Here at De Smet Dairy, our cows are free grazing and grass fed year round. We individually name our cows, and their welfare is our highest priority. Our cows are free of hormones, antibiotics, and GMOs. At De Smet Dairy, we provide you with only the freshest, creamiest, and truly local raw milk.
Raw Whole Milk
Our raw milk has not been pasteurized or homogenized and is left In its most natural form. By not processing our milk, it provides you with many great health benefits, including active enzymes and beneficial bacteria essential to your daily diet.
Because we naturally graze our cows on nutrient dense grass they are providing us with nutrient dense milk!
“…Inspired by the smaller Vermont farms, as well as by the birth of their first son, Landon (now 3 years old; they also have a second son, Logan, 1), and apparently propelled by naysayers, Erica and Mike decided they were going to have the cleanest, healthiest milk in the state.” Local Flavor Magazine – May 2014
“Why raw milk? Well… De Smet grew up drinking raw milk, and when he started his own family, he wanted his children to have access to the kind of delicious, ultra-nutritious milk he remembered.” Edible Magazine – February 2014

Our Raw Milk Drinkers Say…
I grew up drinking cream rich raw milk. It was so nice to find Desmet Dairy
I love this family owned business. They have the best eggs, milk and yogurt that is from paired animals and isn't pasteurized so it contains all the nutrition left. Everything tastes great too.
After researching the differences between raw and pasteurized milk, my husband and I decided it was time to stop drinking the "dead" milk that has had most of the enzymes "cooked" out of it, and find a local source for the enzyme-rich raw milk. We are so glad we found this dairy. The area where the milk is bottled is so clean! It's a family-owned business - and what a nice, hard-working family they are! Mike and his family are always so helpful. As busy as they are, they are always willing to spend time answering our questions. And I can't say enough about the milk. It is so creamy and absolutely delicious. It dresses up my coffee in the morning, and certainly perks up scrambled eggs! I brag about this place and their wonderful milk every chance I get. And they even give tours. We're looking forward to the time we can bring the out-or-state grandchildren down and show them what a real dairy farm looks like!
We try to use DeSmet Milk in all of our Quiches sold at The Santa Fe Farmers Market
I love this milk! It tastes amazing, and I feel good about what I'm putting in my body. Plus the owners are super nice. I just had a baby, and the whole last bit of my pregnancy was pretty rough on my body. There was always someone to carry the milk to my car and load it up for me. So thoughtful. I can't wait to take my oldest out to the farm to meet the cows this summer 🙂
