      Tell me how many you need and I'll have them ready. Trade for a ticket?

        and sell 'em out of the back in the lot of the convention center? Maybe let people know here that's what you're doing. Maybe put an "Old Lefty" sign up?

        I won't be there, unfortunately. Well, not so unfortunately, actually, because I'll be in Rome on those particular days...

          might be a lot for people hanging around a conference...

          :o)

          You might have better luck finding decent farmer's market distribution, or some large local institutions, or banding together with other ag coops to create produce coop of coops that can then distribute a whole range of products...?

          I don't know. I would talk to some folks at the NBCA about ag coop marketing and distribution, I guess.

            and many other avenues as well. I will shake every bush it takes to make this work, and, if not a pickup load, then a basket or two for sure. The real payoff is not the sales, it's awareness of the product, the process and the people in the minds of influential folks who will tell their friends ... priceless.

            If I sound like a capitalist, it's out of necessity, and a desire to show that capitalism if subdued by principals, can be a positive force. Maybe not quite so lefty after all.

            PS; I'm sitting in my lab/office brewing up the most excellent chaga/beeswax skin lotion EVER for use on our logs and on your very own (or mine anyway) crispy dry hide. Works great, and you can eat it. Like I said, shaking every bush., to wit;
