Farm Visit to Visit A Cow Share

There’s fractional ownership for real estate.

Fractional ownership for jet planes.

Fractional ownership for many other cool things…

There’s fractional ownership for cows.

If you’ve done enough research to know that raw milk is indeed very good for your health and that you have a far, far greater chance of getting listeria from pasteurized milk, then the next question is how do you buy milk when the government is intent on making the sale of raw milk a criminal act?

Around here, you buy the cow and then pay someone to milk it for you.Sure, you could milk it yourself, but I have other things to do.

Anyway, I went to visit a farm, to check out their health records, sample studies conducted by two labs every other week, and watch the milking process.

I was very satisfied.

Below is the slideshow for our cameras. The farm has been in business since 1906.

That’s 101 years.

    I love this idea and think it could apply more widely. I’d love to own a hen but you need to have at least two hens and this would produce too many eggs!. I’d happily pay for someone nearby to own and look after my hen in return for half a dozen eggs a week.

    I run a website called which brings together people who want to share any valuable assets and farm animals could easily be included. If any farmers wish to find people who want to buy a share in an animal, they could advertise here free of charge.
