Choose 1 of 3 Membership Levels


Our Daily "Shop from the Garden" Membership Service Fee is $5.00 per visit:


  • This is our simplest membership, and allows members to purchase our freshly-picked, locally-grown organic produce or other goods, sold at our own OFC prices. This fee is added to all produce or other purchases made that day.
  • "Shop from the Garden" does not include any growing and harvest options, it is for daily purchase only.

Our Annual Membership Service Fee is $120.00 per calendar year. January through December produce and goods are able to be purchased at our own OFC prices.


This membership includes:

  • The convenience and personal service of communicating with your personal organic grower 365 days a year. 
  • Our garden can be your source of produce to choose from as a simple way to purchase produce. Just think of us as your own personal “Farmers Market” available at a day and time convenient to you.
  • We will plan together what you want grown and let you know when the likely planting and harvest schedule will be. This will be a new experience if you never have had your own garden. Even if you have your own garden, we can plant the seeds that you don’t have space for in our garden.
  • Our planting and harvest schedule for all of the seeds that we intend to grow in our OFC Main Garden will be provided on our website. There is certain produce (i.e., squash, watermelon, corn, etc.) that must be grown in our Lake Zurich location. 
  • Each member is allocated space within our shared crop bed (kale, lettuce, tomato, peppers, etc.) and will have the option to purchase shared crops at our special OFC prices.  
  • In addition, each member can choose up to 3 specific organic/ heirloom seed packets and create their dedicated personal area in the garden. These packets entitle you to “first pick” when they are harvested. Otherwise, any member can purchase if there is a surplus.
  • To keep produce at its absolute freshest, all pickups must be scheduled in advance. We will coordinate and schedule your appointments for you to purchase and pick up your produce and other goods at the garden location most convenient to you. We encourage an onsite pickup so that we can together harvest your choice of vegetables.  This will also enable you to pick other vegetables that may be of interest to you.  It is a great way to try something new that’s growing and learn how to grow it yourself.  


Our One Time Lifetime Membership Service Fee is $300.00:


  • All of the points above in the annual membership fee are included, but you will be considered a “Steward of the Garden”. This recognition will prevail each year to acknowledge those who see the vision of preserving and expanding the organic growing areas in our community.
