Last season, using the Whole Foods Co-op retail prices as a benchmark, we estimate each Summer Shares was worth $602.  Our members paid just $525.  That’s a 14.7% return on investment.  An important part of the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model is the concept of shared risks and rewards.  Despite having difficult weather and consequently a less than stellar year last season, our members still received a good return on their investment.  In a good year it is quite reasonable to assume the value of the share would be higher.  Conversely in a difficult season, with maybe a flood for example, the value is sure to be lower.  The benefits this relationship offers, both grower and eater alike, are manifold and go way beyond simple monetary value:

 Eat fresh, wholesome, nutritious, delicious food

 Know where your food comes from

 Get to know how it is grown

 Connect with the land in a deeper way

 Help support a family farm

 Contribute to a more sustainable food system

 Invigorate the local economy

 Help build a healthier, more resilient community

We hope you will join us for our 10th season of growing good food for the Northland community.  If you are so inclined, please post this on your facebook timeline, and/or share it with anyone you know who might be interested in healthy, local, organic food.  Thanks!
