CSA Share Price Breakdown

 

The following breakdown is based on the value of produce in a Solo Share. Each size share is 1.5  times larger then the previous share.

 

The second factor is the cost of delivery. Delivery costs include many variables. When one adds up all the costs involved and shakes it out, it costs $8.00 to deliver a share to a home in Zone A and Zone B. Add the produce value and the cost of delivery to Zone A/B and you have the weekly base cost of a CSA share from Tomato Mountain Farm.

 

Currently, it costs $12.00 to deliver that same share to a home in Zone C (the near suburbs). It happens to also cost $12.00 to deliver that same share during Prime Time. As the Weekly Base Cost includes $8.00 of delivery costs, delivery to Zone C and Prime Time adds a $4.00 delivery surcharge to the weekly base cost. Once the weekly base cost and the delivery surcharge are determined, one determines the Season Share cost by adding up the weeks. The Annual Share is just the addition of all the Seasons.
