Membership Sign Up - 2013
For the 2013 season there will be one farmer offering memberships in their grain crops - Roy Lawrence.
You may choose to purchase a Full Share - 100 lbs. of grain, or a Half Share - 50 lbs. of grain. Full Shares cost $125.00 and Half Shares cost $75.00. The deadline for purchase is May 31, 2013.
Within each Full or Half share you also have some flexibility in the grains you choose. For the Full Share you may choose up to 2 (0, 1 or 2) 20 lb. bags of any grain listed to make a total of 100 lbs. For the Half Share you may choose up to 2 (0, 1 or 2) 10 lb. bags of any grain listed to make a total of 50 lbs. Note: final share composition is entirely dependent on harvest results. In the event of a shortage of one or more grains, the farmer reserves the right to make substitutions. Please see the information below on the varieties of grains each farmer is growing.
Please note that due to Canadian Food Inspection Agency regulations, memberships are only available to residents of the Regional District of Central Kootenay at the present time. Once the grains have been harvested and tested according to CFIA standards, grains may become available for those residing outside the RDCK. If you live outside the RDCK and would like your name placed on a waiting list, please complete an application form and submit it to the farmer, but do not include payment at this time. If grain becomes available to you, you will be notified in the autumn.
