Q: How much is it?
A: A Family Membership is $125/yr
Q: Why are you a membership based farm?
A: We are a membership based farm because of our unique business model. Unlike Costco and Amazon we use the annual dues collected towards supporting a small farm and providing a hands-on agricultural experience in our community.
Q: How are my dues used to support hands-on agriculture in my community?
A: Thanks to the dues collected from our members we are able to conduct certain classes, host events and field trips as well as contribute food directly to the community at no cost and without charge. As much as 33% of all dues collected are used to give back to the community annually through these outlets. Additional uses of the money include the ongoing development of the farm, maintaining the farm for public access and to make improvements to the member experience. 100% of the membership dues collected are used on the farm.
Q: What else are the membership dues used for?
A: As stated before 100% of all membership dues are used for the farm. Specifically, we use these funds to support our soil-building practices, natural growing practices and employment practices. Additional uses include the import of beneficial insects as well as the planting of beneficial flora and fauna.
