Raw Milk

WHEN DO PICKUPS START?

Pickups start in late April / early May as milk becomes available.

WHAT IS THE COST?

Herdshare membership: $15 life-time membership. Once you pay this fee you own an interest in our herd and become part of our herdshare.

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:

  • 1/2 GALLON: $12/Bottle
  • QUART: $8/Bottle  

Bottle Fee: There is a $5 bottle fee 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!

Sustainability Membership: Giving $20, $35 or $50 allows us to meet the increase in costs for the day-to-day operations, offer our staff livable wages, and continue to provide high quality milk to our community.  Please choose the level that is comfortable for you. 

WHERE DO I PICK UP MY MILK?

Saturdays in May from 10am-12pm:

Mountain Flower Goat Dairy @ 3240 Broadway Boulder, CO 80304

Mondays 9am-5pm and Wednesdays 9am-7pm:

Growing Gardens @ 1630 Hawthorn Avenue Boulder, CO 80304

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, corn and soy free, grain. We milk our goats in a low-stress environment and treat their milk with the utmost care, cleanliness and respect.
