First, thank you to all who completed the 2014 census form. We greatly appreciate the time and effort you put into it.
Rikki Pritzlaff at the Southern Oregon University Research Center (SOURCE) is currently analyzing all of the submitted data and preparing to release grape pricing information at the beginning of July. OWB will send the report to you as soon as it is available, so keep an eye on your email and this blog in early July. You’ll notice in the coming report that we will include weighted averages for grape tonnage prices by region, as well as minimum and maximum prices per ton to provide a more comprehensive picture of prices around the state.
