Serving Our Customers
Welcome to the My Dad and Me Family Farm Birmingham Co-op! We started My Dad & Me Family Farm in 2007 with our first Jersey cow, Maggie, and have now grown to a herd of over 30 Jersey girls. We love producing 100% Grass Fed, Raw, A2 Jersey milk and are excited to share it with you!
Everyone in the family has an important role on the farm, with Willie and Ellie milking the cows, Heidi and Laura packaging eggs, Daniel and Susan bottling milk, Anna in the kitchen, and David managing pastures, animals and… everything else!
Our Coordinator and son-in-law Michael, manages our Birmingham, and he works hard to coordinate getting our products to you!
Michael comes to the farm, loads the coolers that we packed with your order, and brings it straight to you in Birmingham, where he (and his children) unload, assist with distribution, and load again for the next drop points.
We look forward to bringing you nourishing foods from our family to yours!
To become a Member (or to continue your current membership), My Dad & Me Family Farm requires a $35 annual membership fee. This will be paid with your FIRST order, OR with your first order of the month that your membership renewal is due.
The minimum order is $35. You can order as frequently as you like.
A 15% Delivery Charge will be added to your farm order to cover the costs of delivery and co-op organization.
We will send order reminders via email every Tuesday morning. You can simply click the link in that email to order online.
Orders are due on Tuesdays BY MIDNIGHT. We will process these orders early Wednesday morning and PAYMENTS will be due by MIDNIGHT on Wednesday. *THESE DAYS AND TIMES ARE FIRM CUTOFFS*
We do not want to have to tell you that your order cannot be added (due to late ordering) or was cancelled (due to non- or late-payment), so please submit your order before the cut-off day and time.
When you place an order and complete the checkout, your bank debit or credit card is authorized for the total amount due; however, the final amount is not actually charged to your card until the final total is actually calculated as your order is being fulfilled.
Our meat and cheese products are sold by weight and actual prices vary depending on the weight of the individual item. When you place an order, we will authorize your card for the largest package, and once the order is fulfilled you will be charged the actual amount of the item in your order. Your card will never be charged more than the authorized amount, and the final total will always be less than the amount that was authorized.
For example, if your order includes a $25 Boston Butt and the actual Boston Butt that is pulled to fill your order is only $20 then your card will be charged $20.
When you order milk, you will need to order jars with your first two orders. That will give you two “sets” of jars to rotate through. These jars need to be brought back to us each pickup day.
*DISHWASHER CLEANED, DRY, WITH YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME MARKED CLEARLY ON THE JAR, and WITH THE LID ON*
If they are not clean, the milk will sour faster. If they aren’t dry, the jar will get musty-smelling. If they do not have your name written on them, we will not know whose jar it is. Without the lids on them, they get dusty inside during storage. If you have lost or broken a lid, you may purchase new lids at $1.50 each.
You MUST either have the jars at the farm when you place your order OR add new jars to your order.
Be sure your jars are always labeled with your first AND last name so that we know we have YOUR jars ready to fill for the next time.
