Become a Participating Member of the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance

Join BCFA and help build a new local food system for yourself, your family, your community and the planet. Membership in BCFA also confers special benefits, which may include vendor discounts and members-only events.

We have two main categories of annual participating membership – individual or family Consumer and Food-System Professional (farmer/producer, chef/restaurateur, distributor, market manager/owner, “other”). Since all local food-system professionals are also local consumers who are part of a family, we leave it to you to determine how you want to identify your member relationship with BCFA.

Our individual memberships are $20 a year; the cost for a family of two or more people living at the same address is $30 a year. Your membership is good for one full year from the date we process your application. We encourage you to continue your membership from year to year.

To learn more about participating membership in BCFA and to apply, please print out and read the member application, complete it and send it to us with your check. Instructions are included on the application form.

If you have any questions, please contact BCFA's Admin or 215.621.8967. To make a tax-deductible gift to BCFA, please go to our Donate page.
