One share of our dairy herd, equivalent to the amount of the herd producing one gallon of milk per week.
All the perks; none of the work.
Have you ever wanted to own a cow--without the work and space required to actually keep a cow?
To enjoy fresh, raw milk--without actually needing to milk a cow every day?
Enter the dairy cattle herdshare.
A herdshare is when a group of people jointly own one or more cows. After buying a refundable share of the herd, each member pays the farmer a monthly "board and service" fee for the housing, care and milking of their cows. In return, herdshare members are entitled to their share of milk from their share of the herd, typically around 1 gallon per share per week.
At The Old Road Farm we keep a small herd of jersey cows. After three years of milking just for us, we're ready to share. Joining our dairy herdshare is the best way to ensure your household access to raw milk.
For the time being, milk pick up is Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
