A herd share is a contractual arrangement between a farmer and an owner of livestock - the shareholder or member - through which the shareholder is able to obtain raw milk, meat and other profits of the livestock proportionate to the shareholder's interest in the herd. Herd shares include cows shares, goat shares, and sheep shares, and are sometime referred to as "farm shares" or "dairy-shares," although the term "farm share" can also refer to an entire farm (buildings, land, equipment, etc.) held in joint ownership.

Shane's Great Grandpa and Great Grandma farmed here first. Our house was built in 1875. Shanes Grandpa, Charlie Everson, milked about 8 or 9 Holsteins and delivered milk to the homes in the area. I have never met Grandpa Everson but I am sure I would have loved him. Shane and I started to milk in May of 2004, before kids. We both worked off the farm and started with 10 Cows. Lots of work. Then we had Austynn in September 2005 and when she turned one I then stayed home. Collyn was born in February 2008. Shane then farmed full time and in August of 2018 we Sold our herd of 45 milk cows. Very hard time for us. We couldnt handle not milking and I asked for cows again. Well here we are October of 2019 we started to milk again. We Ship our milk to Minerva Dairy. Kids are old enough to help now. Shane still works off the farm as an Electrician. We do love to farm and you may come to visit anytime.
