How a Herd Share works?
A herd share is a portion of the herd. We call this your “Membership Fee.” In the state of Arizona it is illegal to sell raw milk or raw milk products without a license. However it is legal to purchase a “share” in the herd of our Jersey cows. You become a joint owner of the herd and in exchange for paying a monthly boarding (Monthly Payment) and care fee; you are supplied with the raw milk from your part of the herd weekly. There is a contract that arranges this between the farmer and the owner of the herd.
How much does a herd share cost?
To buy a share in our Jersey cows is $30. You will be charged another additional $30 for each share you purchase. This fee is a life time fee and is reimbursable if you ever want to leave the program. If you want to purchase a half share it would be $15.
How much milk do I get from one share?
You receive 1 gallon of milk per share. You can always add more share(s) “gallons” at anytime. We also do half shares which is equal to a half gallon.
What is a boarding fee?
Your boarding fee is what we call your “Monthly Payment”. You are charged $40 per month per share. This fee is paying for a place for your Jersey cow to stay, your cows’ hay and grain, her maintenance, for us to milk her and to deliver the milk near you weekly.
