Owner Sign-up

    Once you submit the Owner Sign-up form, you can make your $25 equity payment using your credit/debit card or Stripe account.

    I would like to receive Open Harvest's e-newsletter, coupons, and notices. (Open Harvest does not share your email.)


    • As the original signer of this owner certificate, I have the primary interest in equity investment, membership voting rights, and potential patronage refunds.

    • By making a $25 equity investment I am purchasing one share of voting stock in Open Harvest Cooperative and becoming an owner of this cooperative corporation.

    • I have the responsibility to pay an annual owner equity, to notify the co-op of changes in my contact info, and to abide by the cooperative bylaws and the policies and decisions of the cooperative or the board of directors.

    • I have the right to elect the board of directors, attend board meetings, receive notice of the annual meeting, petition the board of directors, and vote to amend the bylaws.

    • I am eligible to run for the board of directors as long as my ownership is active and in good standing.

    • My household is eligible to receive owner benefits for one calendar year immediately after making this
      $25 investment.

    • Each year I will be notified at the register and/or through a renewal letter of my next annual ownership
      investment. If the payment is not received by the due date, I give up my owner benefits and rights until
      the ownership is reinstated.

    • My ownership equity is refundable at the board of directors’ discretion as set forth in the bylaws, a
      copy of which will be provided upon request.

    • My ownership equity will be held for one year if I miss my renewal date, after which my ownership is
      considered inactive and the equity will be considered abandoned to the cooperative (if the conditions set forth in the bylaws are met).
