How to Join the Herd Share:
How it Works
You need to own a "share" in the herd to access raw milk in Virginia.
Buy a share, half share (or more) to become a part-owner in the herd, and pay every 4 weeks for us, you farmers, to take care of YOUR cows! It’s called boarding. We are a service, caring for & milking members’ cows so they can access fresh, raw milk.
1 share = 1 gallon of milk/week. One-time purchase of 1 share is $34.
1/2 share = 1/2 gallon of milk/week. One-time purchase of 1/2 share is $17.
Then you would pay every 4 weeks for 4 week's worth of boarding (us, the farmers, caring for your cows). Here is the breakdown for location:
