DEAR NEW FARM:
I have an organic garden with more veggies than I can use.
We have had this garden for over seven years and the hobby
produces more than we can eat and give our neighbors. Can
I list my home garden on this site for people to come and
purchase some of my extra veggies, and how do I price them?
You can list in our Classifieds
and/or on our Farm
Locator tool. As far as pricing is concerned, check out
our weekly OPX
update to see what premiums organic folks are receiving for
their produce wholesale at terminal markets, after post-harvest
handling, specific packaging and delivery. Also check the
prices at your nearest farmers' market, which, again, reflects
the value addition of the produce being harvested, transported,
and presented for sale, in addition to being attended by someone
from the farm. Keep us posted on how things work out.
us with comments, suggestions and questions.
