What are the costs?
To purchase a share in a cow (one share is equivalent to one gallon of milk a week) you pay $20. This is a one-time cost. In addition to the initial charge you need to purchase ½ gallon mason jars to store your milk in. You will need enough jars to trade when you pick milk up. After the above one-time costs, there is a boarding fee that goes to the Dairy Farm of $25 per share per month: that continues for as long as you own your share.
You can think of it this way if you like, although you are not purchasing the milk: after you purchase your share(s) in the cow, the price of milk is about $5.77 a gallon. Compare this to the price of Horizon organic milk at $7 a gallon and Horizon milk is ultra pasteurized!

*  Madisonville, TN (VERY East TN–all the way), Karen Green, frontporchgoats@att.net, I live in East Tennessee and my husband and I own a herd of French Alpines Goats.

* Harriman, TN, 40 miles west of Knoxville. Matt Edwards, 865-285-9954, medwards22@gmail.com I have Jersey Cows that are hand milked and produce some of the best milk you will ever taste. Many people prefer the “old way” of hand milking so that machines are not necessary and you also can build a better relationship with the cow. They are on pasture and hay in the winter and receive only a little grain each day to keep their attention during milking. I do a cow share program. The share price is $50 and then $40 per month for a gallon of milk a week. www.farmingpreacher.blogspot.com
