F.A.Q.s

Frequently Asked Questions.

WHAT IS A PRIVATE MEMBERSHIP ASSOCIATION? 

The right to associate is not limited to social or political activities. This right can be utilized for business activities (e.g. sale of alcohol and providing medical services). Members of a private membership association have the right to private contract under the due process liberty clause of the 5th and 14th Amendments, and states may not pass laws that impair the obligation of a contract. In conclusion, under the 1st, 5th and 14th amendments we are granted due process. (http://nature-cures.org/what-is-a-private-membership-association).

The 9th Amendment guarantees certain inalienable rights to every man, woman and child. Those inalienable rights include not only the freedom of life, liberty, property, speech, assembly and due process, but any right or freedom which is not specifically given by the Constitution to the government. If the Constitution does not assign a specific right or freedom to the government, then we all have that particular right or freedom.


Those freedoms include the right of self-determination, home schooling, choice of suppliers of products and/or services, choice of lifestyle, food, drink and any right or freedom that does not infringe on the rights and freedoms of others or is a threat. In a private membership association, the members have all the rights and privileges not specifically banned by the association unless they present a clear and present danger of substantive evil.

The 10th Amendment guarantees that no state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

WHAT IS A HERDSHARE? 

A herdshare is an contractual arrangement between a farmer and an owner of livestock, which in this case, is the shareholder or herd share member. The contract allows the herdshare member access to raw milk, meat and other by-products of the livestock proportionate to the shareholder's interest in the herd. A herdshare agreement along with a Bill of Sale, transfers ownership of the herd to the herdshare member which allows them to legally obtain raw milk and other raw milk products. 

We do not sell raw milk or engage in any transaction that can be construed as a sale. We agister livestock ( care for beef and dairy cattle on behalf of herdshare owners ) and arrange delivery of byproducts of ownership to members. 

Cost of Ownership

There are two cost components of ownership: Membership Association and Boarding Costs. 

Membership Association Cost: One time cost of $99.

We offer installments for the cost of membership for $12/month. This fee includes the $3 Agister Service Fee for the first year. 

Agister Service Fee: $3/month

This fee covers caring for the herd which includes feeding, pasturing and harvesting. 

We do not sell raw milk or engage in any transaction that can be construed as a sale. We agister livestock ( care for beef and dairy cattle on behalf of herdshare owners ) and arrange delivery of byproducts of ownership to members. 

WHAT IS RAW MILK?

Real milk is milk that comes from pastured cows, that contains all the fat and that has not been processed in any way—it is raw and unhomogenized.

Our dairy cattle are raised on 100% organically managed pasture and our own farm raised hay. We do not use antibiotics, hormones, grain, or gmo feed. We also do not pasteurize the milk which studies show can degrade the nutritional benefits of the milk. Please see www.realmilk.com for more info.

 

We milk daily, bottle fresh milk for our member owners and deliver it to their doorsteps weekly. 

RAW MILK CAN HELP PROTECT YOUR HEALTH. 

  • Killing pathogens in the milk (lactoperoxidase, lactoferrin, leukocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, antibodies, medium chain fatty acids, lysozyme, B12 binding protein, bifidus factor, beneficial bacteria);

  • Preventing pathogen absorption across the intestinal wall (polysaccharides, oligosaccharides, mucins, fibronectin, glycomacropeptides, bifidus factor, beneficial bacteria);

  • Strengthening the Immune System (lymphocytes, immunoglobulins, antibodies, hormones and growth factors) (Scientific American, December 1995; British J of Nutrition, 2000:84(Suppl. 1):S3-S10, S75-S80, S81-S89).

Other Health Benefits of Raw Milk

  • BENEFITS IN EARLY HUMAN STUDIES: In early studies involving humans, raw milk was shown to be superior to pasteurized in protecting against infection, diarrhea, rickets, tooth decay and TB; and children receiving had better growth than those receiving pasteurized milk.

  • ASTHMA & ALLERGIES: Three recent studies in Europe found that drinking “farm” (raw) milk protected against asthma and allergies (Lancet. 2001 Oct 6;358(9288):1129-33; J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2006 Jun;117(6):1374-8; Clinical & Experimental Allergy. 2007 May; 37(5) 627-630).

  • RAW HUMAN MILK: In recent studies, infants on pasteurized human milk did not gain weight as quickly compared to those fed raw human milk (J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr. 1986 Mar-Apr;5(2):248-53) and premature babies given raw human milk had more rapid weight gain than those given pasteurized human milk. Problems were attributed to pasteurization’s destruction of lipase (J Pediatr Gastroenterol Nutr. 1986 Mar-Apr;5(2):242-7).

  • THE MILK CURE: In the early 1900s, the Mayo Clinic administered the “Milk Cure,” which consisted in drinking 4-5 quarts of raw milk per day, obtaining favorable results for a range of illnesses including cancer, weight loss, kidney disease, allergies, skin problems, urinary tract problems, prostate problems and chronic fatigue; these results are not obtained using pasteurized milk.

  • LACTOSE INTOLERANCE: In a survey of raw milk drinkers in the state of Michigan, over 80 percent of those advised by a healthcare professional that they were lactose intolerant were able to consume raw milk without problem. (Pilot Survey of Cow Share Consumer/Owners Lactose Intolerance Section).

  • ​NUTRIENT DEGRADATION BY PASTEURIZATION:

    • Vitamin C Raw milk but not pasteurized can resolve scurvy. “. . . Without doubt. . . the explosive increase in infantile scurvy during the latter part of the 19th century coincided with the advent of use of heated milks. . .” (Rajakumar, Pediatrics. 2001;108(4):E76).

    • Calcium Longer and denser bones on raw milk (Chapter 14 from History of Randleigh Farm-PDF).

    • Folate Carrier protein inactivated during pasteurization. (Gregory. J. Nutr. 1982, 1329-1338).

    • Vitamin B12 Binding protein inactivated by pasteurization.

    • Vitamin B6 Animal studies indicate B6 poorly absorbed from pasteurized milk (Chapter 14 from History of Randleigh Farm-PDF).

    • Vitamin A Beta-lactoglobulin, a heat-sensitive protein in milk, increases intestinal absorption of vitamin A. Heat degrades vitamin A. Said and others (Am J Clin Nutr. 1989;49:690-694. Runge and Heger. J Agric Food Chem. 2000 Jan;48(1):47-55).

    • Vitamin D Present in milk in protein-bound form, assimilation possibly affected by pasteurization. Hollis and others ( J Nutr. 1981;111:1240-1248).

    • Iron Lactoferrin, which contributes to iron assimilation, destroyed during pasteurization.

    • Iodine Lower in pasteurized milk. Wheeler and others (J Dairy Sci. 1983;66(2):187-95).

    • Minerals Lactobacilli, destroyed by pasteurization, enhance mineral absorption (MacDonald and others. 1985).
