Easy and hassle free
Anyone can join the Ottawa Valley Food Co-op as a consumer member. Just fill out the Join form, pay the $50 lifetime member fee (by mail or with your first order), and be willing to pick up your orders on Delivery Day at one of our pick-up locations.
Joining as a Producer
To be eligible for membership as a producer, one must grow and/or process their products themselves, within the Upper Ottawa Valley. They must use ecologically friendly growing and processing practices as much as possible. Potential and new members are encouraged to volunteer to help out at at least one or two monthly sorting days (2 hours) to learn how the system works and meet other members.
If you are interested in becoming a producer member in the OVFC, you need to fill out the Join form to first become a consumer member, and click on 'I am interested in becoming a producer member'. The Coordinator will then email you the link to the producer join application. Once you have submitted a producer application form, the Producer Review Committee/Jury will review your application and get back to you.
