Hey, I run a farm, and I find myself wasting a good couple hours in the long run of harvest, dumping produce from one box to a bucket so i can reuse the box for my washing station.

So I need Wax boxes
I also need Plastic bins
and Potato Sacks

And I also need an electric market certified scale, I am still using a spring one that the market manager is getting sick of seeing.  looking for a 50ish dollar one that goes to at least 10lb

So if you have an idea where to get any of this stuff, it would be an amazing resource for me.

Thanks for your time,
    Russell

Check out    www.jordanseeds.com

They have a huge array of produce packing materials...and good prices, especially if you can combine an order with other growers in your area.

Every state has a Environmental Division department and many run a free resource trading center as well. Many resources can be obtained free or at reduced cost. I.E. for GA: http://www.scrapmatchga.org/
 
My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
Heat your home with the twigs that naturally fall of the trees in your yard
