Milk Thistle goes public

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 10, 2009

Milk Thistle Farm, which makes great organic milk that can be had at NYC greenmarkets or at Whole Foods, is asking small investors to finance their expansion.

While many organic dairy farmers who supply big producers have been suffering in the recession, Mr. Hesse says demand for their milk and cream has been growing and that they’d like to start selling in more markets. He’s also thinking about producing yogurt and ice cream.

The minimum investment is $1000 and the notes offer 5-7% interest.
