Raw Milk Shares

2017 Raw Milk Shares

SIGN-UP

Email taber@mountainflowerdairy.com to reserve your 2017 Milk Share.

WHEN DO SHARES START?

We will be beginning our 2017 shares in April/May! Contact us to get on the waiting list.

WHAT IS THE COST?

Herd-share membership: There is a $15.00 one-time fee to become a member of the herd-share by purchasing an interest in the Mountain Flower Dairy goat herd

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 Mountain Flower Dairy to provide milking service for you.  The boarding fee is based on how much milk you are getting each week:

  • GALLON: $20/week
  • 1/2 GALLON: $10/week
  • QUART: $7/week.  

Bottle deposit: There is a one-time $5 bottle deposit per bottle.  We 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!

WHERE DO I PICK UP MY MILK?

We have two locations to choose from:

ON-FARM (Wednesdays and Saturdays Only): Our address 3240 Broadway on the Long’s Gardens Iris farm. Please follow the signs and park only in the designated Goat Parking lot, then follow the walking path west to the “Flower House.”

  • Wednesdays 5:00pm – 7:00pm 
  • Saturdays  10:00am – 1:00pm

CURED(7 Days a Week during business hours): Located at 1825 Pearl Street, Boulder CO, pick-ups are in our designated cooler at the rear of the store.  We determine a day to drop off your milk, and then you will pick up your milk during Cured’s regular business hours.

  • Monday-Friday 10:30am – 7:00pm
  • Saturdays  9:00am – 6:00pm
  • Sundays 11:00am – 5:00pm
OUR PHILOSOPHY ON RAW MILK

The primary focus at Mountain Flower Goat Dairy is to provide a supply of the most gorgeous, clean, healthy goat milk possible while demonstrating to the public a working urban farm. We are the only dairy in the Boulder city limits and we are delighted to fill this food void for our community. We allow the public the opportunity to own a portion of our herd and thereby gain access to raw milk.

A spirited debate exists over whether raw milk should be made available to the general public or not. Raw milk advocates have an uphill battle to shatter paradigms that remain from a time when little was known about microbiology and modern refrigeration did not exist. We believe it comes down to a person’s right to choose what food to put into their own bodies. We make a point to keep informed on and involved in the issues related to raw milk. We encourage you to do the same.

We do what feels right to us. That is to raise goats the way nature intended eating grass and alfalfa, grazing in the fields, playing with each other, being loved by humans and eating organic grains. We milk our goats in a low-stress environment and treat their milk with the utmost care, cleanliness and respect.
