ORGANIC GRASS-FED RAW MILK

Greetings Food Enthusiasts!  Now because of the WY Food Freedom Act you can purchase RAW MILK directly from the dairy farmer.  Stanley Jones is delivering to Worland on Thursday or Friday each week.  He contacted me that he has 2 more cows that are ready to calf and will have more milk available.

There are two ways to join his milk venture:  $100 for a Cow Share (one time fee) and then $5 a gallon each week, or $7 a gallon with no Cow Share.  Prior to the WY Food Freedom Act, the only way you could get raw milk was if you owned a part of the cow.  Now Cow Shares are not necessary—but you must buy direct from the dairy farmer.

If interested contact Mary Martinez at 258-0876—Mary is Stanley’s contact person for Worland.

We will be offering the Market Day Share with lightly pasteurized milk (cream on top), Artisan cheeses, Artisan breads and fresh pasta, but the milk has to cross state-lines and is not raw.  Stanley is offering you an opportunity to get your hands on the Raw Milk!  As mentioned on this blog before, fresh is best and the less adulterations made to our foods the better–we stand by that!

FRUIT SHARE IDEA

I still need 10 Fruit Shares to make it work for the 14 people signed up.  Dawned on me last night as the wheels were turning in my little head that unlike the garden I don’t need to collect the Fruit Share up front.

If the cost of the Share has been an obstacle and you would like to get Fruit with the garden Veggies, consider $80 down payment and $15 a week when you pick the Fruit up.  If you’d like you can split the down between May and June.

Are there 10 more people that would like to get fruit under those terms?

(If you are a Leap Frogger, it would be half:  $40 down and $7.50 each time with the Veggies.)

Let me know your thoughts–BTW-if you have paid for your Fruit Share and would like to change to the weekly plan, let me know.
