We welcome everyone that is eager to be a part of our mission to join us. For those that can comfortably contribute the full cost of membership ($25), we ask that you do so we can continue our work to serve you. If you are in a position to support an additional membership for a neighbor, we welcome you to give a little extra so we can offer membership to anyone ($50+), regardless of their capacity to pay. If $25 feels inaccessible to you at this time, please join us and pay what you can!
Optional Add-On: Get Listed on Our New Wholesale Database
Eligibility: To join this program, you must also join or renew as an Adirondack Harvest Business Member at any level.
