    luxe – are you kidding?! why don’t you come up to my farm here and see what we do, and then try justifying why I should sell my stuff ‘cheap’. I have 3 kids here. They all need to be feed, clothed, dentist, etc. We already live on an income below the ON ‘poverty line’. But perhaps I should charge less because people are bitching…

    Do you get into a taxi cab and try to barter for price? Do you barter with legal or medical professionals? Why is it okay to get a very hard working farmer to sell his/her goods for less?

    Best way to get your food for less – put in some work!

    I support u mark! It can’t be easy being a farmer these days and competing with the chemically induced cheap products! It’s not easy to spend more money on food but knowing it is supporting our local farmers & their families, instead of conglomerate companies, makes me more willing to!!! Will stop by soon to check out this market!

    If we could just realize the problem with living in a fast food world where avocados, apples, berries, ect., can be purchased year round, we would start to grasp how valuable local farmers selections really are, regardless of price! Our expectations need to change. Personally, I would chose locally grown… anything – any day of the week – over the alternative.

    thus i came to go back the desire?.I’m trying
    to to find issues to improve my website!I guess
    its adequate to make use of some of your ideas!!

  45. The reason behind choosing a structured interview is that it
    is easier to do analyses. Many organic food brands are not exactly what they
    claim to be. They made for a lot more profitability
    for substantial farms which focus on the development of
    just one kind of plant. A fabric is generally considered eco-friendly (or green) if it possesses
    the following characteristics:. Non-organic livestock are treated with
    antibiotics and hormones to prevent infection and stimulate growth.

  46. Pretty portion of content. I simply stumbled upon your weblog and
