Looking into selling pine straw(delivered)

Hi I'm new to the forum

I have 12/ac of slash pine that have been fertilized and maintained. These trees produce a beautiful straw that has a nice color and a great shine. I have someone that can bail the straw and I can deliver. My question is how much would I expect to get per bail delivered? I would have 1,000-2,000 bails available. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Located in Middle GA

Alomo707,
What equipment are you bailing with? I'm looking for a hand baler or a small mechanical bailer. Just curious , as I am starting a pinestraw business here in north ms.
