How Does the Herd Share Work?
A herd share is a program in which people join a membership of herd ownership. This allows the members to access the raw milk products that the herd produces. There are a couple locally. As far as I know, they only offer milk. However, we are a full service dairy and creamery. Not only do our herd share members have access to milk, but we also produce cream, butter, ice cream, and cheese. (The bulk of our cheeses are for public sale as they have been aged for 60+ days, but we do have some soft cheeses that are reserved for our herd share members only.) We also have sour cream and kefir, upon request. Further, our meat is processed in a USDA certified facility and is available for public sale. So even if herdshare isn’t for you, we have several grass-fed beef products available that might be.
To join our herd share, there is an initial buy-in fee of $60.00 ($30.00 for 1/2 share), and then a monthly boarding fee of $52.00 ($32.00 for a half share). One share is equivalent to one gallon of milk/week. We have two packages: half share (half gallon/week) or a full share (one gallon of milk per week). We deliver to Redmond and Bend every Tuesday, Ashland the second Saturday of the month, and Portland every other Monday. We charge a flat monthly delivery fee, $5.00 for Bend and Redmond, and $10.00 for Portland and Ashland.
Once you are a member, you will have access to our full range of products.
