|No reviews yet. Be the first.|
Your purchase of a share of the dairy goat herd. Refundable as desired.
Your order is protected with the LocalHarvest money back guarantee.
Your purchase of a portion (share(s)) of the diary goat herd. You will literally own a portion of the herd.
One full share entitles you to the production from all goats in milk (normally 2-3) which is usually +/- 4 quarts per milking each week.
After purchasing your herd share, purchase a monthly maintenance plan and a milking kit (optional). Then call 512-655-9039 to schedule an initial shareholder milking/training time to begin your city farm experience. At this first meeting we will sign a bill of sale and a maintenance agreement.
Should you decide to opt out, I will buy your share back from you at any time for the full price you paid for it.
The farm is located in South Austin near Bedichek Middle School.
We love our animals and the healthful products they produce. We hope you will enjoy them as well!
We look forward to working with you!
We use natural practices with our animals whenever possible. An herbal wormer is used weekly and antibiotics are only used when a vet confirmed bacterial infection is present. All shareholders will be informed when a problem is found. Test results for goat health and milk safety are available for inspection upon request. Milk is tested by a lab after each kidding, quarterly, and any other time there appears to be an issue. Test results are usually posted in the files section of the CityFarmAustin yahoo group.
