Camel milk is the best alternative for cow milk!

Camel milk is raw, pure and not pasteurized!


Camel milk is new in the Netherlands since 2006. Camel Dairy Farm Smits is the first and only camel dairy farm in Europe.


Dutch camel milk tastes about the same as cow’s milk. Some people find that camel milk tastes saltier and spicier than cow’s milk. Cows and camels eat mostly grass. This grass largely determines the taste of the milk.

A part of the fresh milk is frozen in bottles of 0.5 liter. The frozen milk has a shelf life of one year. If you want to drink the frozen camel milk, you have to thaw it in the refrigerator. Thereafter, the milk still has a shelf life of 3 days, provided that it is kept refrigerated. Milk that has been thawed cannot be refrozen.
