I am posting this here because it definitely deals with food, though not sure if it better belongs in the livestock section. I am definitely interested in finding a source of fresh, locally produced milk (either goat, cow, or sheep), but that would involve a share program. The tl;dr of a share program is that a farmer sells a 'share' of a milk producing animal and you also pay an upkeep cost in exchange for milk. I won't be getting some dairy goats until next year (not prepared this year!). Has anyone here been a part of a milk share program? What questions should I ask of the farmer before joining one? I know I should see if the goats are well kept and make sure milking is as clean as possible. Anything else?
