Adopt a cow of our flock "Gaec Mehaberria" in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (Frankrike and receive your harvest in the form of cow cheese at home. The Farmer Jean will take care of your adoption and take its picture. Also, you will be able to download the adoption certificate and, if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. As the production coming from one cow is big, the adoption is shared among various people. If you wish to have a bigger share, you may adopt more than once. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: once you receive your harvest and you enjoyed the experience, you may decide to renew and extend the adoption.
Adopt a cow from our farm in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port (Frankrike). We suggest you adopt one of the 2 cows: Maialen or Mirentxu, they are very nice young Prim ’Holstein cows. They are between 3 and 5 years old. The cows are fed with a lot of pasture, but when they are inside and more particularly in winter they have a supplementary supply in linens and alfalfa clovers and this is how they produce a milk rich in Omega 3 which is guaranteed by the Bleu Blanc Coeur label. It’s a family farm that was bought by Jean’s parents over 40 years ago. It is a farm that operates in conventional and extensive mode, with control over inputs and maximum food autonomy. Thanks to this diet which guarantees the Bleu Blanc Coeur label, there is an impact on the release of methane and therefore of global warming! indeed : As a general rule, 1 cow produces 600 l of methane per day, but a Blue White Heart cow produces 15 to 20% less (calculated according to a method recognized by the UN). In terms of milk it is 20 g of co2 per 1 liter of milk produced by a standard cow and for a BBC cow: 15-16 g. We can evaluate in terms of km traveled by a vehicle a gain of 450,000 km for a herd of 50 cows! This is how Jean's production saves 315,000 km per year compared to conventional farming !!! In addition, the area occupied by raising animals and creating food is 50 ha. The productive life of a cow is around 7-8 years. For as long as you want to keep it and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew your adoption year after year. If your cow dies, we will replace it with no additional cost and assuring the delivery of your production from other animals. After their productive life they are sold in the meat circuit. The female calves are bred for milk production and the males enter the fattening circuit. Each cow is adopted by 250 CrowdFarmers who receive a box with 2.5 kg of cow cheese.
Each season we will send you a box with: 1 x__ cow's milk cheese in ripened tomme cheese__ (about 2.5 kg) The box contains a cheese of 2.5 kg (diameter 17-18 cm, height 10 - 11 cm) in cow's milk in tomme ripened in the cellar for at least 10 weeks with care by brushing the crust. The resulting cheese is a delicate and fragrant soft paste of the Tomme de Pyrénées type. It can be enjoyed at the end of a meal on a cheese platter, but also as an appetizer or in salads in a dice or sticks shape, prepared as a raclette or in Burger preparations. The characteristic of the proposed cheese is that it is made from Bleu Blanc Coeur milk, so guaranteed in Omega 3. It comes in 2.5 kg Basque tomme cheese, aged manually in our cellars for more than 10 weeks. This cheese being ripened for several months can be kept for several more weeks, it will dry a little bit which will give it more taste but it will still be very good to consume.
