Herd (Milk) Shares

 Options. No Obligations.

Herd-share membership: There is a $20.00 one time fee to become a member of the herd-share by purchasing an interest in the Sunshine Acres Dairy goat herd.

Bottle deposit: There is a $5 deposit per bottle that is non-refundable for provision of jars by Sunshine Acres for your milk. We also ask that you bring back your empty, rinsed-out glass bottle every week and we will sanitize it for you and give you a new bottle filled with fresh milk! If you accidentally break a bottle, don't worry, you may place a deposit on a new one.

Boarding fees: Because selling raw milk in Colorado is illegal, we never sell milk. You pay a “boarding fee” to board your portion of a goat and for Sunshine Acres Dairy to provide milking service for you. The boarding fee is based on how much milk you are getting each week:
