Why join a herd-share? Can’t I just buy raw milk?
The herd-share structure is a necessity to receive raw milk in Virginia.
Think about a herd-share as a milk subscription with a one-time membership fee.
By joining our herd-share you are now part-owners in our herd! Once you own a share in our herd instead of paying for milk you are paying for services from your farmer to care for your cow and deliver milk.
How much milk is a share?
One share equals one gallon of milk each week. Half shares are a half gallon each week.
To purchase a share in our beautiful Jersey herd there is one-time initial buy-in of $30 per share or $15 per half share.
To start getting raw milk delivered to your area each week simply fill out this form!
After completing this form (within 48 hours) we'll send you a sign-able herd-share agreement and payable invoice for your one-time herd share buy in along with other details about your first pick-up.
Every 4 weeks you will be invoiced for 4 weeks of service (service includes care of your cow and delivery of milk). Pricing is based on location. Scroll down for more details.
