Farmers and consumers working together on behalf of the Earth and each other. While the farmer is tending the Earth on behalf of others, consumers share the costs of supporting the farm and share the risk of variable harvests (and also share the over-abundance in particularly fruitful years).
- Membership in the Agri-Share is based on shares of the harvest. Members are called shareholders and they subscribe or underwrite the harvest for the entire season in advance. Each project handles this relationship in its own fashion. Every farm is different in length of season, crops grown, level of social activities and price they set for their shares.
- Agri-Share is not about cheap food, which is usually neither nourishing nor grown with care of the environment in mind. Agri-Share is about each of us being responsible. We encourage you to compare prices of the share of our local Agri-Share to the supermarket's "cheap food."
