The seasons are changing, you can feel it in the air. The rains are slowing down, the sun's rays are warmer each day. The plants are waking up, and the farm is coming back to life.
With this new year and season, we have to make one final change to our memberships.
Why? Sonoma County Permitting Office has informed us, we can no longer offer our VIP membership with free dinners, lunches, and brunches without a new event or usage permit. To get these permits, it will take time and money. We intend to pursue the proper permits and will offer expanded membership hopefully by 2018.
For now, we have decided to simplify the memberships, and we will only be offering one type for all members. As of today on our website, the new Founding Membership is $250 for all new members. This will be the full price. We are waiving the sign-up fee which is $400 for now.
What is included in the Founding Memberships? Full access to the gardens, harvesting, eggs, hanging out, picnics, creek access, cut flowers, starter plants and all the activities we plan to have on the farmstead this Spring / Summer and Fall.
Full benefits and rules can be seen here: Noci Membership Guide
For our VIP & Unlimited Members, since we have decided to charge $250 per membership, all our current members who are paying above $125 a month will get a price reduction and receive 50% off the $250 price - which is $125.
For our Basic Members, we will be ending that membership by March 1, 2017. If you would like to upgrade to the Founding Membership, you can upgrade at the 50% off price for the next 30 days for $125 a month.
The farmstead will be flourishing this year, and all the gardens across the entire farm are being planted out. I can't even begin to tell you how many thousands of plants have gone into the ground in the last 30 days. Blackberries, strawberries, table grapes, spring garlic, beans, artichokes, peas, 500 blueberry bushes, sunchokes, asparagus, tomatoes, peppers, onions, broccoli, 40,000 wildflower seeds, fruit trees are ready, and so on... It is going to be our best Spring yet!
As always, thank you for believing in us. This is a journey, thank you for coming along with us.
From all the Noci Staff....
