Hi Jane,

We are not selling to farmers, vendor, or farmers market - we are just
letting people know about a free resource for marketing their farm and/or
farmers market.

I am on the Marketing Committee for MIFMA and I also work on Real Time
Farms, and thought it would be a good thing, for particularly farms to know
about. The website gets the whole community marketing for their own farm.

Best wishes,
