Your 2013 CSA value, priced per pound

your 2013 CSA value, priced per pound:

$1.43 per pound!

plus you received 20 sunflowers and a mixed boquet (combined value of $25)

Here’s some quick food for thought:

In 2013 you paid approximately $1.43 per pound of Swier CSA veggies. (In 2013, a full Swier CSA share received approx.  289.5 pounds of produce over 18 weeks. That averages out to 16.1 pounds per week.) In addition, you received 20 sunflowers and 1 mixed flower boquets, roughly a $25 value.

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 2013 evaluation/survey we tried to gauge the value you place on these intangibles, some of which we’ll just look at below….. enjoy!

  • “I snack on cherry tomatoes while carrying the crate to my truck.”

  • “The biggest challenges for me are the cooking, preparation, preservation of seasonal foods. When I consider my lack of knowledge and experience in this regard I think, “Wow, I grew up on boxed macaroni and cheese.” Still, though, I want to press forward toward efficient usage and storage of these foods.”

  • “I developed a “Got to use it Wednesday stir fry”!”
