Family Cow Share
Looking for a local, organic, carbon neutral way to get your dairy? We're proud to announce that we have a few spots open for joining our regenerative farming efforts through a family cow share.
How does it work?
You schedule a day for pick up and we give you the entire day's milking (generally around 3 gallons). All you need is a large container (food safe 5 gallon buckets - with lid! - will do the job) or holler and we'll have one for you (for a $3 deposit). One milking/week is $20.
What do I do with all that milk!?
You'll be amazed at how quickly 3 gallons goes away! Included in your cow share is a small packet of recipes for: ricotta, paneer, cream cheese, yogurt, sour cream/creme fraiche, and butter.
What if I go on vacation?
No worries. Mocha, our beautiful milk mama, doesn't take many days off...but she does save up all of her vacation days for late spring when we dry her off before she calves. If you, unlike Mocha, spread your time away, or if there are weeks that don't work for you, no worries. Just let us know and we'll put your milk to good use here!
Why should we try a family cow share rather than grabbing a gallon at the store?
We are confident that you won't find a better tasting milk anywhere. There is nothing like freshly squeezed Jersey milk! In addition, supporting small local farms is a great way to choose a system of operation that pays fair wages for labor and keeps money in our towns and in the hands of hardworking regular folk rather than sending it to business executives. Finally, we use high density rotational grazing, which, combined with our hand milking is not only low-impact, but working toward becoming a carbon sink to combat global climate change.
