Now that you have purchased a Milk Goat Herd Share you are the proud owner of a portion of a dairy goat herd. Contract with me to take care of your herd share for you.
MILK AND CHORES: $12/mo per quarter share. $45/mo per whole share. You milk once a week at your set milking time. You can milk by hand or with a hand vacuum pump milking machine. You keep everything that you get and help with goat chores for2 hours a month. Bring the family and that's only 30 minutes for a family of 4! And the bonus is the animals are a lot of fun to be around; especially during kidding season. You pay me to take care of the rest of the chores.
Plan to spend 90 minutes each week for milking chores. During the learning phase you should plan to spend 2 hours each week.
PICKUP ONLY: $8/week per quarter share, or $30/mo per quarter share, or $120/mo per full share. You pay me to take care of all of the animal chores for you. You come weekly at your scheduled time to pick up your milk (you get everything that came from your assigned milking session).
Quarter Shares. You will be working with another shareholder to complete the milking tasks and you will split what is produced for that milking session.
We use natural practices with our animals whenever possible. An herbal wormer is used weekly and antibiotics are only used when a 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 and any other time there appears to be an issue. Test results are usually posted in the files section of the CityFarmAustin yahoo group.
