How to Become a Herdshare Member

Thanks for your interest in the Rehoboth Farm Raw Milk herdshare! Here is how you can become an owner:

1) First, you agree to purchase a share of the herd. Each share owned entitles the owner to a share of the herd's weekly production, which is normally 1 gallon per week. There is a one-time non-refundable Bill of Sale Fee per share of $40.   Please click here for the Bill of Sale AgreementPlease print and review this document. If you have any questions please let us know. If not, please fill out your portion (highlighted in yellow) and sign the agreement.  (If you cannot get this to print, we will get the necessary documents out to you). 

2) Next, Rehoboth Farm agrees to care for, feed and milk your herd.  Our Boarding Fee per month/per share is $35.  Please click here for the Boarding Agreement (called a 'Bovine Agistment'...that's the name the lawyers came up with).   Please complete this form as well.
 
3) Return your agreements to:

Rehoboth Farm
17091 Hollis Lane
Bristol, Virginia 24202
or scan and email agreements to
 
4) We will send you an initial invoice by email once we receive your paperwork. You can pay online at our webpage Payment Link, or by mailing a check to the address above.  Once payment is received, you may start picking up milk.  We bill in advance (Invoices sent on the first of the month, due on the 20th, for the next months boarding)

5) Finally, we sign and return your copies to you.  Enjoy!!!
