Sign up for Affordable Farm Bucks program

Lost Sierra Food Project’s harvest season is about to begin in a few weeks! If you are looking for fresh, nutrient dense food grown right here, in Plumas County, come see us at Rugged Roots Farm this summer!

Rugged Roots Farm is located at  501 Crescent Street, Quincy.

Aiming to make local food more accessible, the Affordable Farm Bucks program is just one part of our food access mission. Now is the time to sign up for Affordable Farm Bucks! The program gives you a $300 credit towards the farm stand, honor system fridge, flowers, berries, and all our events through the 2023 growing season!

Who qualifies?

Low income community members, veterans, folks impacted by the wildfires, and ANYONE who identifies as food insecure.

What are they?

Farm Bucks are credit at the farm that can be redeemed weekly at our Tuesday farm stand, honor system farm fridge, for purchasing flowers, all berries, and the pumpkin patch.

How does it work?

There are three levels of participation, so you may choose what makes the most sense for you and your family:

Tier 1 – Pay $0

Volunteer a minimum of 10 hours on the farm. Attend two free cooking workshops on the farm (July 18th and August 22nd)

Tier 2 – Pay $50 (CalFresh is accepted)

Volunteer a minimum of 5 hours on the farm. Attend two free cooking workshops on the farm (July 18th and August 22nd)

Tier 3 – Pay $100 (CalFresh is accepted)

Attend two free cooking workshops on the farm (July 18th and August 22nd)

This program is hosted in partnership with @plumascountypublichealth.

Volunteering on our farm is optional, but past participants have expressed it is their favorite part of the entire experience. The farm is both healing and a wonderful way to experience this community.

*Deadline to sign up is June 1st, please reach out to [email protected] with any questions.
