Tips for Milk Share Members

Raw milk is not for everyone and that is ok, however for those of us that do choose to enjoy it's many benefits I have a few tips and things to keep in mind.


Do’s and Don’ts
   - Proper containers

          Glass 1/2 gallon or gallon jars work best. Your jars MUST be

          clean and ready to pour into.

   - Air dry your jar before you put lids on, any moisture inside the

          jar left sealed for a week before your next pick up can get

          stinky and grow mold. Jars that are not clean, have odors or

          mold will not be filled.

   - Jars must be labeled or marked with your name on the jar.

          china marker, markers, or tape on the lids all work well

    - You must leave jars with me to fill for the next pick up
   - I like cash for payment but Don’t put money inside your jar

          Paper money can reportedly carry more germs than a

          household toilet.
   - Make a Koozie for your jars or bring towels to wrap them in for

          transportation, it won't take much for jars to tap together
          and break.
   - Bring a cooler/bag/container for pick up
