Goat Milk & Cheese $15

Sparta, TN
The River Garden is back in milk and looking for new herdshare members. Our farm is located in Sparta, TN along the Calfkiller river, where the goats enjoy lots of land for foraging.

We milk goats and make all kinds of cheese for our family. A herdshare allows you to own part of the goat herd and get milk/cheese from your own goat (the only legal way to get raw milk in Tennessee.) Once you join, you get a say on what new cheeses we make.

Buying goat milk for your baby? If your worried about raw milk, you can pasteurize it on the stove. By owning the goat through a herdshare you can produce your own milk for less than half of what Walmart charges for ultra-pasteurized goat milk (if you recycle your jar.) (So, you could have double the milk for less money and control the level of pasteurization to meet your needs.)

About our cheeses. We've been making cheese for over 5 years now and still playing with new recipes all the time. Some of our favorites are Asiago, Havarti, and brie. Mozzarella, ricotta, and fromage blanc are great for cooking with. We have a cream separator which allows us to make cream cheese and goat butter. (And yes, all our cheese comes from goat milk.)

The herdshare means you have to buy part of the goat upfront. We sell 1/15th of a goat for $8/share. That money is refundable when you sell it back to us, but required legally. Then you pay a monthly boarding fee.

The boarding fee for 1 share is $15/month which entitles you to 4 herd-share items. If you pick up milk, you'll get $1.5 back per quart jar in recycling credit off the next month. So, you would pay just $9 the next month if you brought all 4 jars back. Want more milk, get two shares and pay $14.5/month per share or 3 shares and pay $14/month per share.

I hope that didn't sound confusing. We keep up with the recycling on our records so we make it easy for you. 1 quart of milk, makes roughly 4.oz of cheese. So, 4.oz of cheese also counts as 1 item. The hard cheese come vacuum sealed for a long fridge-life.
