Price Reports from 2006 to 2017

Please note: Due to the low response rate 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. Based on that feedback, we have created an online price reporting form, organic farmers can send us their existing price lists and we will enter their data, and we tried county specific price reports for the first time in Summer 2015. We have also moved to creating just 2 price reports per year: one in the summer and one in the late fall. Response rate has increased somewhat, but is still low.

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. If you value the price reports, let us know. We struggle to continue to generate them in a way that is useful to farmers.

Links to past reports appear below. Historic price information on some organic crops is available from the USDA.

For 2015, we created county-specific price reports for Cumberland, Hancock, Lincoln, Sagadahoc, and Waldo counties. Some county reports include only 3 reporting farms; counties with less than 3 farms do not have a price report. This was a one-year test; based on the low number of farms per county it is unlikely we will offer this service again (unless response rates increase).
