Hello CSA Friends!
We are now accepting CSA share applications and renewals for the 2012 Summer Share season. The new 2012 application is pretty well unchanged from 2011 and we have decided to leave the share prices unchanged until January 31 after that a price increase will probably occur. The seed catalogs are arriving now and looks like the average seed costs have increased 30% to 40%, our compost (fertilizer) supplier told us last week that his prices will be up 25% and the potting soil we use in the greenhouse to grow the transpants has doubled in price. We also received notice that our agricultural land taxes are going up almost 40% and who knows what fuel prices will do in the next 30 days??
The logistics for next season should work pretty much the same as it has this year with the same pick up locations and times. We are interested in expanding share pick up locations so if you have any suggestions let us know.
You can download the updated 2012 application form from our web site www.bergefurdsfarmmarket.com then drop it in the mail to us and you are all set for 2012!!
If you have any questions feel free to email or call. Our family looks forward to being your farmer again in 2012!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
