How it works
1) An annual $50 buy in fee into the herd will be required. This entitles you to buy shares (1 gallon of raw unpasteurized milk = $6) on a weekly basis• A maximum of 4 shares can be purchased weekly and they can be picked up at our store weekly or bi-weekly. We are requiring payment in advance each quarter. An invoice will be emailed to you at the beginning of each quarter. If you miss a quarter, you will have to pay the buy in fee again if there are any remaining shares.
Yearly example for 1 share:
$50 annual herd fee
$6 per week x 4 weeks = $24 per month
$24 per month x 3 (one quarter) = $72
1st quarter payment of $122 ($50 + $72)
2nd – 4th quarter payment of $72 each
Yearly cost of one share= $338
2. When you pay the annual buy in fee, there will be a contract for you to sign that presents your responsibilities and what we expect from you. The contract also expresses our obligation to you and to our cows.
