Got Milk? Goat Co-op Seeking a Few New Members

Our pregnant goats at the Boulder Jewish Goat Co-op farm on Cherryvale are about to kid, and a few co-op members are moving to faraway places or on to other pursuits.

So if you’ve been considering acquiring some part-time goats to milk and care for (once every week or two), enjoying fresh milk & cheeses, or wanting your own kids to discover our true food sources, contact us to set up your first step to consider joining the co-op  — an observation with a co-op member to see if this is for you.   You don’t know how to milk?  Not to worry!  No experience needed — we train you!

Here’s what our co-op members have been saying:

I found myself speaking about the surprising joy I have found in milking goats once a week  and gathering fresh eggs from our Jewish goat and chicken co-ops. Each of us has increased our appreciation for what we are consuming.”

It is also rewarding to drink milk from an animal that you just milked that morning.   I’m also so thankful to the goats for giving us this great gift of milk – and I tell them so each time I milk them.”

My family has not only enjoyed eating the cheese we’ve made, but also from participating and witnessing the cycle of life on a farm.”

I’ve learned that animals have real personalities and temperaments. Jewish tradition states that while animals do not have the same soul (neshama) as humans, they do have a ruach, a spirit.  Now I know it firsthand.”

To get started, contact  Yael at 303 884-3806 (c).

Said Rabbi Yosef: “He who dreams of a goat, his year will be blessed; if he dreams about goats, his years shall be blessed, as it is written: ‘The goats’ milk will suffice for your food.'” (Proverbs 27:27).
