Raw milk is fresh, unprocessed whole milk produced by pastured grass-fed cows. Raw milk is rich in vitamins and nutrients, and can help protect against disease by stimulating the immune system.

Raw milk can be obtained legally in Ohio through a herdshare boarding contract, or agistment. Each share represents legal ownership of a portion of a herd, which then entitles you to a corresponding amount of the herd's milk production.
One herdshare allows you to obtain one 'unit' of dairy products per week. One unit equals one of these items: 1 gallon of milk, 2 quarts of yogurt, 16 oz cream, 8 oz butter or other various dairy.
For more information on herdshare ownership at Highland Haven Farm, please consult our FAQ page, or contact us directly with any questions you might have.
Our Bill of Sale and Bovine Agistment forms are online for your convenience.
Dairy products are ordered each week via website, and can be picked up directly at the farm or at one of our delivery points. We use the same delivery routes and pickup locations as the Cedarmore Farm CSA, which provides its members with a weekly box of in-season fresh vegetables.
We currently offer weekly deliveries to Hillsboro, Mt. Orab, Batavia, Eastgate, Anderson, Loveland, Mason, Westwood, Norwood, Kenwood, Clarksville, Lebanon and downtown Cincinnati.
We will be adding more delivery points in the future, so please contact us for an update.
