You want wholesome delicious raw milk - and we make it easy to do that!

In Virginia, raw milk can only be sourced from your own cow. Herd shares make that possible!




So, what is a herd share?

You get milk every week, delivered to a pick up site near you - like a milk subscription from your very own cow!

(But you don't have to wake up at 5:00 AM to milk the cows. Win-win).


Members pay a one-time fee to own the share and a weekly amount per share for us to care for your cows and deliver milk to you! 

The weekly cost is determined by location. Click the "Get Raw Milk" button to select a location and see pricing. The ownership fee is refundable if you end the membership.

FAQ

Answers to our most-asked questions

How long does raw milk stay fresh?

Creambrook raw milk is sweet and fresh at least 7 - 10 days and usually 14 days. Unlike its pasteurized counterpart, milk that is raw doesn't "go bad" or rancid. It ages and sours! It's wonderful in baking and in place of buttermilk when it starts to sour. 

Do I get milk automatically every week?

Herd shares are like a weekly subscription. Milk is delivered each week and you don't need to do anything except enjoy it.

What happens when I go out of town?

You can ask a friend to pick it up and enjoy it, or you may send us an email at least 4 days before the scheduled delivery. We’ll skip your delivery and you can double up your milk shares at a later delivery (hello, homemade ice cream!). You won't want to miss out on any of the delicious milk in your share! 


What do your cows eat?

Our Jersey cows are outdoors every day of the year. During the growing season, they are moved daily to fresh pasture. During the winter, they eat stored grass (a fermented hay called "baleage"). They enjoy a supplementation of non-gmo sunflower seed pellets. 

I like the sound of this but I don't drink a lot of milk.

A lot of people think of milk to lighten their coffee or wet their cereal, but raw milk is a superfood of nutrition! It's full of vitamins such as A and D, minerals, proteins, enzymes, and good, delicious butterfat. A cup of raw milk in your day would use up a half gallon each week and you can easily enjoy all the benefits. 

Here are some helpful resources about raw milk benefits and safety:

What does "lab tested" mean?

Our on-farm lab has two separate tests: one test is the coliform count, which shows the number of coliform colonies that are in 1 ml of milk, if any, and the other is APC (aerobic plate count) which indicates the cleanliness of our milking equipment, essentially showing the shelf life of the milk. 

The lab can't show us if there are specific strains of coliform, like e. coli or listeria, but if the coliform count is above standard, that could indicate an issue that needs to be addressed. 
If the APC count is high it means that the milk has the capacity to grow bacteria whether good or bad and it would sour more quickly. 

We have voluntarily chosen to follow the same standards as licensed Pennsylvania raw milk dairies, so that is why we chose these lab tests. The milk has to test as clean as pasteurized milk. For well over three years we have had incredibly clean lab tests that are well below the standard limit. 

To take it a step further, we are members of RAWMI, the Raw Milk Institute, the global leader in raw milk production, education, and safety. Because we are a RAWMI listed farm, we have accountability with their leadership, submit regular lab results, have access to more raw milk education, and keep up to date on raw milk safety and handling. 

Do you use antibiotics or other medicines for the cows?

We have a wonderful veterinarian who helps us to figure out the best natural remedy if a cow becomes ill. Antibiotics have very rare use on our farm, and are only used to save an animal if other natural treatments haven’t worked. If a milk cow is treated with antibiotics, her milk is kept separate from the herd share milk and discarded for the appropriate amount of time.
