production of the agricultural or handcraft products to be handled by or

through the association, including the lessees and tenants of land used

therefor, and any lessors and landlords who receive any part of the

sale price of such product as rent. Under the terms and conditions prescribed

in its bylaws, a consumers' cooperative may admit as members any natural
