How to join the Herdshare

CFF Farm Share agreement 2020CFF Farm Share agreement 2019

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 100 families working together and buying a small herd of healthy, happy cows and 50 acres of native pasture. Some members come to the farm daily and brush, milk and care for the cows, calves and other livestock. Some members are delivery points for your milk. Some members drive out to the farm once a week to pick up their farm fresh food, eggs and milk!
