I am getting into this endeavor because when I needed a source for organic vegetable transplants they were not around for purchase. I feel I am not the only farmer who has this problem, so I am going to do my best and fill the demand in the area.

Hi Kevin!

Very nice... glad to hear about this most recent endeavor. Sounds like you've been busy since we talked last year. I'm sure it was a busy season for you with your farm. This is exactly what Farms Reach and the organic/natural garden movement needs. People like you who have a commitment to finding a need and filling it with huge amounts of energy! As a young farmer you are doing what we need to sustain the planet responsibly. Congratulations and best wishes for success! PS-It's a good idea to add your phone # to your post for contact info; yeah, I know, you will be on the phone more and more.. but that will be a good thing. Great job, Kevin.
