What is a Co-op?

The purpose of a cooperative is to serve its members. A cooperative is member owned and operates similar to other businesses- with one exception. The cooperative's profits or savings, after the costs of doing business are paid, are ruturned to the members as patronage dividends at the end of the year. Patronage is paid out partially in cash, and partially as equity in the company to be paid out at a later date. In order to receive patronage dividends, you must first become a member of the cooperative.

Becoming a member of the Garden City Co-op is as simple as filling out a membership/credit application and purchasing $50 of stock in the company.

Anyone who is a producer of agricultural products in our trade territory may become a voting member of the association by purchasing $50 of Common Stock. Anyone who is not a producer of agricultural products in our trade territory may become a Participating Member by purchasing $50 of Participating Stock.

Every cooperative member receives a patron number. You can make cash purchases, or if you are approved for credit, you may charge against this account. The more business you do with your cooperative, the more you receive back from your cooperative in patronage dividends.
