We are a nonprofit marketing organization for farmers who sell directly to customers from their farms. Benefits include:
- A listing in the printed ‘Produce Guide’ – distributed to 100,000+ people at places around town
- A website listing on tricountyfarm.org, which allows customers to search for produce and nearby farms. Also, the website allows mailing crop information to a large number of subscribing customers.
- Other benefits include rubbing elbows with other farmers at the meetings. We have general meetings in January, February and March, and our annual meeting and farm tour in April.
Membership dues for 2011-12 are $375 for new members and $350 for renewing members. You must be a farmer in Clackamas, Multnomah or Washington County and sell from your farm as a stand or u-pick. At least 50% of sales must be produced on your own farm. Farm sizes vary from very small to very large. If you want to grow your business, the membership cost is a very good value. To be included in the printed Guide, applications are received from mid-January to mid-February. For inclusion in the website, applications may be received at any time.
