SLIDING SCALE PRICING
SHARE PRICES ARE AVAILABLE ON A SLIDING SCALE, WHICH IS SIMPLY A FINANCIAL CHOICE BASED ON YOUR ACCESS TO FINANCIAL RESOURCES AND DOES NOT AFFECT THE SHARE SIZE/AMOUNT — THAT IS, THE SIZE OF EACH SHARE, WHICH REFLECTS 10-15% OFF OF CURRENT RETAIL VALUES (ESSENTIALLY WHOLESALE PRICING), REMAINS THE SAME NO MATTER WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD TO PAY!
SLIDING-SCALE PRICES ARE DESIGNED TO PROMOTE ACCESSIBILITY TO HEALTHY FOOD, WHILE ENSURING FAIR COMPENSATION TO THE FARM/FARMER.
Before choosing what level is suitable for you to pay please read this excellent explanation of sliding scale and economic justice from the Underground Alchemy in Albany, NY, which I found through the incredible farm Soul Fire Farm.
