We recently caught up with Paul Loomis from our Education Team, who, among other things, works on our Price Index. He has some helpful answers to questions you might have about the program. It's a great tool, and if you’re a member who is NOFA-NY Certified Organic, or a Farmer's Pledge farm, click here to get started. We hope you consider participating in it!

Q. What is the Price Index, and what farmers should be using it?
A. The Price Index is a tool developed to assist farmers in pricing their produce, eggs, and meats that they work so hard to produce. The PI works in real time and is split by region so you can see what is happening in your specific area. Since it does track real time data, it can be useful in crop planning, evaluating what early and out-of-season crop prices command in the  market. It can be useful to all farmers; the more pricing information available, the better for all. Price trending and stabilization is beneficial to the entire farm community.
