Siskiyou_Coop-christmas_2014Profile: The Copeland family has been ranching in Siskiyou County, CA since the 1870’s and Bob and Dusty Copeland have been milking cows for their family use for over 35 years. When they retired their goat meat business and were asked by families in the local community to share their milk, they looked into it and decided to use their farm to give back to the community. They began a Farm Share in 2006, with families coming to the farm to milk the cow and raise meat and eggs for their private use. This group of individuals decided to start a non-profit organization that worked together to build the micro dairy and milk the cows. Working with Raw Milk Institute standards, they have created a healthy raw milk product. They also teach classes on how to make cheese, butter, and kefir, and have offered their acreage to members who want to begin their own projects.
