Here's the scoop on real milk.
How it Works
You need to own a "share" in the herd to access raw milk in Virginia. At Creambrook, 1 share equals 1 gallon of milk per week, and a half share equals 1/2 gallon of milk per week. It is $34 to purchase one share and $17 to purchase a half share, and this is just a one-time, refundable charge to own a part of the herd.
Shenandoah Valley & Central VA:
1 share........$36/month for boarding & delivery
1/2 share.....$20/month for boarding & delivery
Richmond & Mechanicsville:
1 share..........$38/month for boarding & delivery
1/2 share.......$22/month for boarding & delivery
Farm pick up:
1 share.........$32/month for boarding
1/2 share......$16/month for boarding
For example, if you own two shares, you get two gallons of milk each week (monthly boarding & delivery x2). Monthly payments are made online for a streamlined and convenient experience. We have many convenient milk pick up locations!
No Alarm Clock Necessary
You become a member & part-owner of the cows at Creambrook when you buy a share. It's like having your own cow - just without getting up early for milking! No alarm clock needed. Our family does the work to care for your cows. And gladly! It's what we do and what we love. Members pay the initial purchase to buy shares, and then monthly boarding for the cows, which covers our care for cows and a delivery fee.
