You are right there are junk fax laws, but if you have an existing
relation and you are polite in the way that you do things, it's
and you call always ask.
The problem with small producers is that will only have certain
products on certain days and seasons. so you have to get that word
out. In my town the cable company has a channel with nothing but
classified ads...but that would be more expensive than a fax.
All these ideas are in the realm of "Guerilla Marketing" some may or
may not work, but are cheap and fast to implement.
I see there are wondrous opportunities for small producers, but these
largely depend on demographics. I would like to see our group come up
with some practices and techniques that would work anywhere with any
