Anyone who can meet the membership requirements and agree to Driftless Co-Option policies is eligible to be a member.
- Small businesses and farms
- Retail co-ops
- Individual and family households
- Existing or new buying clubs

People who find the minimum quantities for purchasing and shared effort requirements to be too high for the level they intend to participate can team up with others of similar volume and share a membership.
Driftless Co-Option is a working member organization. There is a monthly Shared Effort obligation to contribute to the running of the club, averaging 3-4 hr/month.
Shared effort jobs include weighing out and repacking split cases, checking out orders at delivery, picking up products, updating price lists, purchase ordering, coordination, sourcing products, other development tasks, etc.
