Here’s some quick food for thought:
In 2012 you paid approximately $1.71 per pound of Swier CSA veggies. (In 2012, a full Swier CSA share received approx. 226.5 pounds of produce over 18 weeks. That averages out to 12.58 pounds per week.) In addition, you received 20 sunflowers and 4 mixed flower boquets, roughly a $36 value.
Yes, you did! Organic, nutrient-dense, fresh today, thoroughly tastey, and absolutely authentically local!
On top of that, there’s all these fuzzy intangibles that are such a large part of the Community Supported Agriculture experience. These are much more difficult to place a solid dollar value upon. In the CSA 2012 evaluation/survey we tried to gauge the value you place on these intangibles, some of which we’ll just look at below….. enjoy!
one CSA shareholder expressed so well for all of us: “flowers fill our soul – sunflowers! wonderful!”
About the Garlic Harvest party, another CSA shareholder claims, ““You should market this as therapy!”
We’ve also dedicated much time and effort towards reaching out, in addition and beyond our weekly “face-to-faces on the curbside” during deliveries. This has included this website and our presence on facebook too. Hope you enjoyed your 2012 CSA. Thank You!
