We recommend $200 or more per year, but members have the option to pay less. We offer several payment plans to make it easier to pay the recommended $200 over time in smaller amounts. Farmers who wish to pay less than $150 should apply for a waiver, which would grant them support from the Grassroots Fund. Waivers are intended for beginning farmers and those facing unusual hardship. An exception is granted for beekeepers, who must pay some amount, but to accommodate hobbyists, we don’t require a waiver for lower amounts.
