Return On Investment With Backyard Farmers - What's your time worth?
So you are going to be installing three elevated vegetable gardens by constructing them yourself in your backyard. We commend you on your decision but how exactly are you going to go about building them?
We want to briefly touch on what your outcome financially would look like if you decided to install three raised vegetables gardens WITHOUT the help of Backyard Farmers… How would you begin?
Well, we can tell you that the solo road to growing your own food is not easy. For instance, aside from the rough estimate of about $1,000 it would cost in supplies (assuming red cedar materials similar to what Backyard Farmers offers) it would cost you additional personal time that you could be spending on your hobbies or with friends and family. As a matter of fact it would take approximately 117 hours between the planning of your backyard mini-farm to finishing the job to get your raised bed vegetable gardens pumping produce.
Where did we get 117 hours from? You can see the break down below, so we encourage you to keep reading...
So now let’s say that on a low end your time is worth $25 an hour. In reality your mini-farm is not costing you just $1,000 in materials, but really about $3,935 when you consider your time. (This number would be much higher if you’re a more highly paid professional or executive, etc.)
For almost $4,000 you got three raised bed vegetable gardens when you could have had it for much less by going with Backyard Farmers.
Now consider this scenario... for an average three raised bed vegetable garden project the investment is approximately $2,300. You already knew this – but what we are going to show you now is that by going with Backyard Farmers you can break even before the end of the second year!
How do we figure you will be able to break even so quickly? Using extremely conservative estimates, your three raised beds would produce about 1155 lbs of produce a year. Take 1155 lbs of food and multiply that by the average cost per pound of produce in the grocery store and you save about $2,552 on groceries in the first year.
This analysis doesn’t take into account the amount of money you could get back on your tax returns by donating your leftover produce to a soup kitchen or homeless shelter nor does this analysis take into account the amount of money you would save from not having to buy as much baby or pet food since you can supplement all of that with the produce you will grow with your backyard mini-farm. Just some points to keep in mind...
We realize you are probably wondering how we are coming up with this number. Don’t worry we have all of our back up data here for your review right here but we want you to know one thing…
