How much is the annual membership fee?

Free State Agriculture would like to thank our members for their annual contributions in membership fees, without which we would not be able to perform our duties. We would like to express our gratitude with the words of Mahtma Gandhi

"A Customer is the most important visitor on our premises. He is not dependant on us. We are dependant on him. He is not an interruption on our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider on our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favour by serving him. He is doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so."
