We are excited to announce that we are introducing a "GOAT DAIRY CREDIT SHARE" this season. When you buy a credit share, you prepay for an account with us, and draw against it anytime you'd like during the season. Each share provides a 10-12% savings.
What can I get? Raw goat milk, goat milk yogurt, goat milk kefir, goat milk ricotta, cajeta (goat milk caramel sauce) and goat milk soap. -We also plan on making some special cheeses that will only be available at our farm for our share members. We are still playing with ideas, but currently our plan is to have mozzarella and chèvre available from time to time.
Where do I get the goods? You can pick up at our farm, or at our farmer’s markets (advance notice required for farmers markets) in Waldoboro, Rockland, or Bath.
How much does it cost? Share Options: “Nigerian Dwarf” (small share): $100- with a starting balance of $110. “Nubian” (large share): $200 – with a starting balance of $225.
When do I need to sign up by? May 1, 2017, preferably.
What happens if I use up my share mid-summer? You can purchase another one! Same pricing.
What happens if I don't use up my share by the end of the season? You lose it. All shares must be used up during the season in which it was purchased. Dont' sweat it , though. Let's say it's the end of November and you still have $50 left on your account. Cajeta is canned and has a one year shelf life- you could stock up on stocking stuffers! There's also soap, which won't go bad either. You'll have options!
I'm still not convinced- why should I buy a share again? - Buying a share SAVES YOU MONEY! -You don't need cash to pick up items at the farm or farmers markets. Sometimes I have customers who are in the neighborhood, and stop by for milk but realize they don't have enough cash. If you're a Credit Share member, it's no problem! -Your money supports local, and our family farm. We couldn't do this without you! -Maybe you'll try something new. Never heard of kefir before? You might not buy it on a shelf in the market, but if you know you're getting a discount on an item, maybe it will give you more incentive to try something new. You may find a new favorite product this way! -Your upfront purchase provides us with capital to start the season with. It's a long winter in Maine- and the farm doesn't bring in income during these quiet months. Having a little extra start up capital will help us make the best possible products for you!
I am totally convinced. How do I buy a share? Email Christelle at christelleATcoppertailfarmDOTcom, and I'll send you a paypal invoice. If you don't use paypal, you can send us a check, or swing by the farm and we can accept credit cards or cash.
