    Thank you, Mike -- we just got the last bin filled up this afternoon so there is fresh mulch in all colors & soils ready when you are. Right now prices are the same as last year, but we're waiting for Angelo's to come out with their price list. I don't expect us to go any higher, but if they end up dropping by a couple bucks, we'll be sure to match. Its the same story as the services end this year -- costs are up & prices are dropping at the same time -- can you imagine how luxurious it will feel to all of us once this insanity passes? Stop in & talk to Mark whenever you're ready for the direct ship -- we'll definitely be able to set you up.

    Berville is essentially where North ave ends. LOL North and about 42 mile. There's no website - but it's always in Mid to Late March..... and the weather ALWAYS SUCKS. Look at this year. It was great all last week.... even amost 70 on Friday. Saturday (auction) comes around, and it's 34 and windy as hell. I was windburned and cold as hell. It's out in a huge open field - no break from the wind. It took me two days to warm up - it was the coldest I've been all winter, and I work on a farm outside all year round!
