A2 Raw Milk Farm Share
We are passionate about supporting your healthy lifestyle and have been providing raw milk to families in our community since 2014. We raise our herd of A2 Brown Swiss cows and calves, in the sunshine and green pastures of East Texas. Our girls all have names, come when called (normally) and LOVE attention! They get milked only once per day, in the mornings, then they are free to spend the remainder of their days sunning themselves or grazing in the pastures.
We have found that this routine allows for the ultimate farming experience for us and our milking girls. It allows us to leave our calves with their moms until weaning. It allows the cows to get their job done and then spend the rest of their day making more milk in a stress-free environment. It is also much easier on the milk cows bodies and energy expenditures, and we don’t have to supplement their feed, when they are only milked once per day. It also allows more time for us to focus on our animals, our farm, our family and our members.
After the calves are weaned, around 4-6 months, we start milking them twice per day until it is time to dry them up before their next calving.
Brown Swiss cows are known to have a very high butter-fat content and normally carry the A2/A2 beta casein protein, which is known to be easier to digest for people with dairy allergies or lactose intolerance. All of our cows are tested A2/A2.
As a member of our PMA and Farm Share, you own a share of our farm! You get milk every week, or as needed, picked up directly from the farm- like a milk subscription- from your very own cow! The best news is that you don’t have to wake up at 5:00 am to milk the cows!
