A Family/CSA Cow?

Hey everyone. Christine and I are thinking about getting a beautiful, sweet Jersey cow from our friend Jonathan who is downsizing his herd. This means we would have certified organic raw milk to sell 10 months of the year. She would produce about 3 gallons a day at least, which adds up! We are weighing the pros and cons, costs and benefits. We would like to know what others think about this- how many CSA folks would buy raw organic milk? Would you enjoy a CSA share approach to buying the milk? Would you want to come learn how to milk her? Would you want to help us with the initial up front costs of acquiring a healthy milk cow? Please give any and all of your thoughts. Thank you.

Adam, Christine, and Sadie

  1. That is a great idea! Cow milk at your farm for about 10 months? My goodness, I would love it! I think CSA members would too! Cannot wait to try it out- think of all the health benefits for everyone! Go for it !! Great investment for your family, your health, your farm, and all CSA folks!! Love ya
