One of the things we did manage to do, though, was to coordinate a massive order of harvest crates. These are the cases we harvest produce into, wash in, and take product to market. If we'd bought only enough for ourselves, they'd be about $19 each with freight. By organizing a number of farming neighbors, though, we ordered 1200 of them at about $12 each. It meant signing a purchase order for a $15,000 shipment, which was a bit scary, but it saved us almost 50% on a very necessary farm purchase. Our friends at Crandall's Corners Farm took receipt of the shipment, since we don't have the means to unload pallets.
That's one thing off the list!
