Limited Goat Shares Program
We do the housing, milking and care of the goats and you share in the milk from our herd. We are a small family farm in Penrose Co. We have a beautiful small herd of a Nubians and Alpine goats that we are milking. With these goats we are be producing more milk than we can use on our own, so we are offering limit shares in the goat herd. This can give you an opportunity to get to know your goats, visit the farm and participate in the wonderful experience of local sustainable farming.
For a $30.00 one time buy in fee you can purchase a share in our goat herd. Afterwards you pay $30.00 a month board and that entitles you to share with us, 1 gallon of milk per week.
For a 1/2 Share, a $20.00 one time buy in fee. Then you pay $15.00 a month board and that entitles you to share with us 1/2 gallon of milk per week.
Limited Delivery is available to Select Areas for an additional fee. Shares will be on a monthly basis and are renewable as milk is available. Shares can be sold back to BOD at the end of any month.
You can provide your own jars or purchase jars from us. We charge $2.50/jar: all jars are 1/2 gallon jars. Keep in mind that you will have jars with you and jars left here at the farm, depending on your shares. You must return your jars each week for your next weeks milk. Please return jars, clean, sanitized and dry.
Milk will be available for approximately 6 to 9 months a year. This year we will breed in usually December. Does will be dried off 3 months after breeding to allow for a 2 month period of growing strong healthy babies.
Our goats are fed premium quality alfalfa/grass hay, have free pasture time and a 16-18% grain mix and Black Oil sunflower seeds while milking. They also have fresh water, and mineral available to them year round. All of our goats are vaccinated one month before kidding and wormed when they kid. Should the need arise for other medications all withdraw times are followed according to the medication label. This goat would be milked last and all milk discarded for that period of time.
First visit you will be charged for the share, monthly board fee and Jar deposit. Each month the board will be due on the 1st of each month.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have!
You select a day of the week you want to pick up your milk weekly. Every week you are able to come to the farm and pick up your milk. We are located at 1144 4th Street Penrose
We look forward to working with you!
