 Organic Price Reports Minimize

** Please note **

Due to the low response rate (barely 5% of MOFGA Certification Services certified farms submitted prices for the most recent report) from certified organic farms regarding price data for the price reports, we sought feedback from certified organic Maine farms in 2014 about what types of services would incentivize higher participation. We hope to (and are seeking funding to) do a variety of things in 2015:

1. Create an online, easy to use form for submitting information
2. Possibly, if response rates increase, create regional price reports for Maine
3. Include more wholesale and market level (i.e., what grocery stores charge) data

To do this, we need your help! If you are a Maine, certified organic farmer please consider contributing your pricing information to Heather Omand at homand@mofga.org for and/or throughout the 2015 season. We can't do this without you!.

In 2006, MOFGA began regular surveys of prices charged by MOFGA certified organic farmers in Maine for both direct sales and wholesale sales. Because we are collecting data from a relatively small sample size, there are often products with only a few prices listed, if any. It should also be noted that MOFGA farmers sell to a wide range of customers, which can sometimes result in a wide range in prices listed for a particular item in one report, or from one report to the next. These reports are published as a service to the organic farming community to expose farmers to the range of prices that are being paid for their products. Links to past reports appear below. Historic price information on some organic crops is available from the USDA.
