The Value of Our CSA

dollar-sign2Since the very start of the CSA program at Upper Meadows Farm, accessibility and value have been two of our driving values. This season especially, given the less-than-favorable economic climate, we are renewing our commitment to provide the freshest and healthiest organic produce at the best possible value. Three of our shares this season provide local, organic produce for less than $1 a serving.

We’ve put together what we are calling our “Value Proposition” for the 2009 season so potential members can see exactly how the share prices break down.

Our Family Share is recommended for a vegetarian couple or family of 3 0r 4 people. It costs $595 for the entire season. That breaks down to $27.07 per week, and $.72 per serving.

Our Individual Share is recommended for a couple who likes to cook or  1 vegetarian. It costs $425 for the entire season. That breaks down to $19.31 per week and $.77 per serving.

Our Half Share delivers exactly half of the family share, with pick ups any 11 weeks out of the season. Because this flexibility raises our administrative costs, the half share costs $425 for the entire season. That breaks down to $38.62 per week and $.98 per serving.

This season we are offering all of our members a 10% discount on all of our value-added products like beef, poultry, eggs, honey, and maple syrup. Returning members are also eligible to receive a $50 rebate on their renewal, or $50 in coupons for the above products. Please contact Megan with any questions regarding rebates.
