[Market-farming] Grower's Association?

I personally like to negotiate my pricing direct with the consumer.  Having sold (and still sell) commodity corn and beans I find the "market" irritating at best and absolutely love dealing with a market that I can negotiate pricing. 

An extremely important thing to consider is that a Grower's Association becomes a distributor and IF a majority of your sales goes this route then you are no longer exempt from the Federal Food Safety Modernization Act.  You must sell directly to the retailer, chef, or consumer.
