Delicious and cost savings !
By: Debbie Bruesewitz (Jul 30, 2013)
This is my first year subscribing at the Beaver Creek Gardens CSA. Besides the fresh organic delicious vegetables I have noticed a remarkable difference in my grocery bill each month. It dawned on me the other day that I only take in one bag to get groceries and I find myself only purchasing staples such as flour, sugar, coffee, yogurt and only needed to buy bananas and avocados in the produce aisle. So I have checked the budget spreadsheet and what I purchase in the grocery store has dropped by $200 a month. Also, have noticed that the eating out purchases have dropped because we prefer to make new dishes and recipes that Cheri includes in the newsletter.
It does seem like a lot to begin your subscription with the CSA but if you really think about what you spend in the grocery store for much poorer quality produce it really amounts to a savings.
I was very much surprised. I did not expect my grocery bill to drop that significantly. The taste of your food is another noticeable difference. It will be difficult to return to the produce aisle in the winter. That is an incentive to freeze or process any excess you have and can enjoy all winter long.
Well worth every dollar - and eggs - very difficult to go back to store bought eggs once you have tried these eggs from such happy chickens.
