Let’s Talk Pricing
We have very strong opinions on how to price “at the farm” products! Our opinions regarding the pricing of organic products is even stronger! When we asked a local farmer why they chose to go certified organic their response was “Because then we can charge more”. Even the province of Ontario’s reasoning on choosing to go organic is not because it is better for people or the planet, but better for profits. We disagree with this philosophy completely.
For us, choosing to farm organically was not even a choice. We grew up in a world where the word “organic” didn’t even exist because everyone’s garden was “organic”. Today, a great divide is being created between those who can afford organic and everyone else who cannot. When we price our products, we compare against major grocery store chains and then price our products lower. After all, there is no middle man to pay, no employees to hire, no franchise costs to pay, etc. We truly believe that everyone, regardless of income levels, should be able to afford great food for their family.
Products purchased directly at the farm are not only better, but should be cheaper. Ours are both!
