Hi All, I received an e-mail from John and Ann Kania regarding organic milk. They would like all interested others to know about the meeting on Thursday night.
Their phone number is 209-274-4995
Hello all, John and I are starting the process of getting a raw milk business started, and would like to invite you to come to a meeting to find out about being part of our cowshare.
Mark McAffee, the owner of Organic Pastures, famed national whole foods maverick, will be here giving a presentation on raw milk and starting our cowshare!
The meeting will be Thursday Dec. 10 at 6:30pm. Samples will be served.
In a cow share agreement, you would pay a farmer a fee for boarding your cow, (or share of a cow), caring for the cow and milking the cow. The cow share owner then obtains (but does not purchase) the milk from his own cow on a weekly basis. These are popular and growing all over the country, as people want to have access to the freshest, healthiest milk possible.
You would be supporting a local farmer (John) and purchasing your clean, raw milk at a fair price.
You would either pick up your milk at our farm, or at one of our potential drop points near you: Sacramento/Elk Grove, and El Dorado county.
If you have questions or are interested in becoming a raw milk customer, please call us and come!!
Below are websites with more information on the cowshare concept, and the amazing health benefits of delicious raw milk and raw cream.
