When I stewed with the numbers for awhile, I knew I’d made a mistake. In 2012, you did not pay $1.89 per pound of Swier Family Farm CSA Veggies, you paid $1.71 per pound of veggies!

Swier Family Farm

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!
