How to join the Herdshare

We are a community of members who have joined together to give us access to farm fresh milk, eggs, meat etc. Think of it as 60 families working together and buying a couple cows, with members milking the cows and caring for the livestock, and driving out to the farm once a week to pick up their farm fresh food and milk. Part of all members dues pay for feed for chickens; so eggs are free when you collect them yourself!
