Swier Family Farm : 2014 Veggie CSA
Evaluation, Survey and Feedback
(I know, I know, I didn’t use Survey Monkey… I am just DIY.)
Thank you for taking your valuable time to complete this. Your answers will help us better understand your needs and how we might better meet them. Your frank evaluation is invaluable; don’t hesitate to tell us the “good, the bad, the ugly”.
Please return your evaluation, electronically or hard copy, anonymously or not. I will share results with you once I have a significant number of responses. I will then dive in with my own seasonal reflections (many of which are already somewhere on our Website). I enjoy the back and forth communications, and I look forward to your Evaluations.
My focus and my intent are to economize our CSA efforts and finances. We are trying to “work smarter” as we “work harder”. We continue to try to put our farm efforts where they best make most Shareholders most happy, contented, and satisfied.
