- If you are getting your milk delivered, we charge $5 per month regardless of the amount of milk you are getting in order to cover delivery costs.

- Milk is delivered by 2pm at each delivery site on the delivery day. Picking up the milk is at your

- Every week, clean your empty jars and bring the jars and lids back and put them in the refrigerator. Then,

Pick-up at the farm process:
- Come to the farm whenever you want.

We test our milk once a week for e-coli 0157, salmonella, listeria, campylobacteria, and bacterial plate counts. Since 2005, we have only had one bad result approximately 7 years ago for the bacterial plate count. We threw out all of the milk and found the problem to be that the hot water setting had a malfunction.
- We clean all of the cow udders with DIY dish-washing liquid (made from Borax, water, and natural handsoap)
and hot water prior to milking.
- We sanitize the system with hot water (160 degrees F – 180 degrees F) prior to each milking.
- We filter the milk prior to bottling.
- We sanitize all jars using a commercial dishwasher and hot water only.
- After milking, we rinse the system
with cool water; then, we use a food grade bleach/acid with hot water
which is agitated and cycled for 10 minutes.
We require new shareholders to put a credit card on file for their fees. Invoices are emailed out on the 5th
of the month for the current month’s charges. We bill cards on the 20th of the month so if you have any questions about your bill, we work it through between the 5th and the 20th. We take credit card numbers over the phone for security purposes. Once the credit card number is in our charging system, no one is able to access it again.
