Small Mennonite-owned family business is offering cow and goat herd shares. They have one cow, an A2/A2 Jersey. They are currently milking Nubian goats.
Milking process: They promptly chill and strain their milk, and make sanitary handling a priority.
Containers: All milk comes in sterilized glass jars. A $5.00 jar deposit is required, if the jar is not returned by the next week pickup date. Plastic containers are also available, if preferred.
- Cow herd share: One share, which yields one gallon of milk per week, costs $50 for the one time initial purchase fee, and then $18 per month boarding fee.
- Goat herd share: One share, which provides 2 quart of milk per week, costs $25 for the one-time initial purchase fee, and then $20. per month boarding fee.
- Larger or smaller shares are also available.
If for any reason you discontinue your herd share, your money will be refunded.
They also breed registered Oberhasli and mini Nubian goats.
Farmer's statement: "Do you wish for fresh, creamy raw milk, but don't have time or room for an animal? We are offering both cow and goat herd shares. The goats we are currently milking are Nubians, which yield a sweeter and creamier milk than most goats, due to their high butterfat level (most people can't believe it's goat milk)! We enjoy our farm and caring for our animals. And thou shalt have..... milk enough for thy food; for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance of thy maidens. Proverbs 27:27"
