If you figure out the math buying 2 dozen eggs and 3 gallons of milk each week from her I am paying only $20 dollars a week from her as opposed to $40 dollars a week from the store-a savings of $20 dollars a week! I actually save even more than that because the cream on the top of the milk I skim off and make butter or sour cream which saves me from having to buy them from the store except for only occasionally.
Well, this wonderful little farm has been left alone until recently when the state I guess finally took notice. They have been told to either jump through hoops and become a "class B" dairy - which means lots of drugs & regulation - or stop selling their milk. So, like many small farms run by people that are educated, aware and care about their animal, their product and NOT pumping them (and us) full of poisons, they found a way to get around the ridiculous regulation.
Since it is not illegal (at least not yet), to drink raw milk from your own cows they have sold shares of their cows to all their customers. I now own a few shares of a cow and instead of paying them for the milk, I pay them for housing and feeding "my" cow. Ya gotta love it!
Keep on Preppin Folk!
