The vouchers range from $2.00 dollars to $375.00 dollars.
Members pay an annual fee of $40.00 in order to be eligible for the dividends.
Prior to distributing dividends to owners, profits were used to fun the LEED certified building on Sierra College Dr in Grass Valley.

The Briar Partch Co-op is Nevada County’s leading natural food grocer since 1976 and is open to the public.

Correction: Owners purchase $20 shares in the Co-op every 6 months, up to $200 to be eligible for the dividends. (not a fee) :)
