Comparisons

You are saving money on food, not spending it on a luxury!

We were curious to know exactly how much our food would cost compared to some local stores. So we put it to the test! We were happy to find that at $15/week for an 18‐week season, we give even non‐organic food at Wal‐Mart a run for its money.

All the food listed in the table below fit in a plastic grocery bag, and is equivalent to the amount of food in half a bushel basket from Red Acre Farm CSA, or one week of a Family Share.
