Your Food Calorie Receipt by the Numbers:
As a very small CSA, most of our production is done by hand. Each year we have been tracking Agricultural output/energy input.
Viewed numerically this is translated in the following spreadsheets:
Translated into input/output ratios (fossil fuel cals: food cals) are accounted for vegetable production delivered to members and what we canned and traded. When fruit and other perennials are added (which used no fossil fuels) the number is 1:14, or about 140 times more efficient than industrial agriculture.
In addition to the fruits and vegetables listed, we offer a diversity of herbs throughout the season including: mint, oregano, chives, sage, parsley, lovage, thyme, rosemary, basil, cilantro, marjoram, savory, hyssop, dill, and fennel.http://www.hilltopcommunityfarm.org/contact-us/
