You can find the United States' only camel dairy in Ramona, California. It's operated by husband and wife team Gil Riegler and Nancy
Why a camel dairy? Riegler says camel's milk is nutrtionally very close to human mother's milk. It's high in protein and low in fat and sugar as well.
Production is a problem though. Camels only deliver milk about 90-seconds at a time, which yields about two liters worth. Riegler estimates it could be several years before the dairy is commercially viable as a milk supplier.
In the meantime, the couple makes soap out of the milk and sells that. See a full report from San Diego's KGTV and check out the dairy's Web site.
