Farm offering herdshares in 100% grass-fed Jersey milk.
Purchasing a herdshare means that you legally own a portion of the dairy herd and participate in both the costs and benefits of that ownership. Each share includes an initial share investment and requires a monthly fee for the maintenance, keeping, feeding, milking, and care of your cow.
For your investment in the herd, you are also entitled to the benefits: raw milk, other dairy products, and other farm products depending on share type purchased. Belvedere Farms has three types of shares available: a simple Milk Share (1 gallon raw milk per week), a Dairy Share (1 gallon raw milk, 1/2 pound butter, 1 quart yogurt, and 1 dozen eggs per week), and a Farm Share (everything included in the Dairy Share plus 8-10 pounds of meat per week).
For questions and availability, please call/text Raelene at 330-715-1052.
Farmer statement: "Sunshine + grass = creamy, delicious, nutrient-dense, beautiful raw dairy."
Herdshares are available for this herd of heritage breed British Guernsey goats. $10 buy-in per share, $2-4 jar deposit per share, and $16-18/month per share boarding fee (price subject to change year by year depending on feed costs). One share = approximately 1 quart of milk per week (can vary depending on time of year but is often slightly more). Goats are fed organic (or GMO-free if organic is unavailable) grain/alfalfa mix on the milking stand, free range grazing and mixed grass/legume hay. They are not Certified Organic but strive to maintain as natural and chemical free herd as is possible. Free pint available for sample during the milking season (April-November) but must be picked up at farm. See other places where you can find products from this farm.
