Sussex & Studholm Agricultural Society #21 is the oldest continually operated agricultural society in the world, established in 1841. Our member owned business offers agriculture and hardware products.
In the spring of 1841, a group of farmers met to discuss ways to improve farming and encourage agricultural developments in their community. From this meeting, Sussex & Studholm Agricultural Society #21 was born with the goal “to encourage agricultural development through innovative farming techniques.”
Today the Sussex Co-op, as it is commonly known, continues to prosper. Sussex & Studholm Agricultural Society #21 is a member of the Co-op Atlantic network of co-operatives.
At our farm store, you can find feed, seed, work wear, garden supplies, plus many agricultural supplies and implements.
Kaitlin Bos has been hired as an Agricultural Business Development Specialist and looks forward to discussing your agricultural needs. For more info, please contact her via email at email@example.com.
Sussex & Studholm Agricultural Society #21 is a member-owned business; however, both of these stores offer all a chance to buy, but membership does have its advantages.
Price of Membership
The cost is $20/year plus HST and expires at the end of October every year. Membership can be renewed at our country store.
Why Do We Pay Yearly for Sussex & Studholm Agricultural Society #21?
Your agricultural society predates the co-operative movement (1855). Sussex was established in 1841 and the original by-laws states an annual membership is to be paid on a yearly basis.
