How Many Cherry Tomato Plants?

How many plants will probably depend on your tomato strategy...

Easiest strategy = give shareholders a cherry tomato seedling to plant at 
their own house.

Next easiest = have the shareholders u-pick the cherries at your farm.

Hardest = the farmers harvest the cherries for the shareholders.

If you're harvesting for them, plant fewer.  If it's u-pick, you can plant 

I'll leave it to someone else to advise re: actual amounts, my CSA farming 
experience was in Oregon, where tomato production is smaller than in warmer 
climates like Virginia!
