We don't do any wholesale sales or restaurant sales, only direct to
consumer sales - that consumes everything we grow.

We've been doing spinach for $3 for 1/2 pound bag. Yes, it flies out 
at that price. People who bought one last week buy two this week. And 
so on.

Alison - What is your wholesale price? In this area, restaurants 
usually pay retail for their local produce. (but orders are never 
large.) -Allan
