HERDSHARE PROGRAM INFO
Broken Arrow Farm is a one women owned and operated micro-dairy in Creston, West Virginia serving surrounding local communities with the most nutritious raw dairy products available. Two of my wonderful ladies are Jerseys and the other two are Jersey Ayrshire crosses, the lovely little ladies spend most of their time in the pasture grazing off of our lush pastures.
Hi, I'm Lyndsey, I own and operate the micro-dairy full time to ensure the health and happiness of my animals, which is proven in the quality of our products. I'm born and raised in West Virginia where I grew up on a beef farm and still do to this day, back in 2013 I bought my first dairy cow to supply my family with fresh milk daily but unfortunately lost my beloved cow a year later.
Ever since 2013 I have been on the search for the perfect dairy cows to bring back to my farm, in 2021 I finally found the perfect four little bottle calves to start my dairy and am now happy to have my dream job as a dairy farm to supply my community with fresh local dairy products.
MORE ABOUT THE HERDSHARE
What is a herdshare?
A herdshare is an agreement between you and the farmer. You buy a share in the herd and pay the farmer for their services. In the state of West Virginia, it is essentially illegal to sell raw milk by the gallon, however it is legal to buy into a herdshare.
If you wish to drink raw milk and get the amazing benefits from it, you must first buy a share of the farmers herd and sign a contract.
Once you have bought into our herd, you can now legally obtain raw milk from us with monthly fees that account for boarding, feeding, milking, any vet care, etc. for your part of the herd.
A herdshare is basically buying a cow and hiring a farmer to milk, take care, and do all of the hard work so you don't have to!
