Went to the Columbus CENTS show this week and was talking with one of the growers from Maine and they offered me a 20% discount on their prices for contract growing and was wondering if anyone does that here or would do that. If you haven't heard about it here is a brief summary. Sounds like a great idea for some larger companies that put in alot of the same trees every year and can estimate how many they need one year ahead of time. There are some obvious risks but for myself being the size I am, I can be certain that I will put in so many Red Sunsets, Legacys, Birch, Ash, etc. per year and saving a good amount of what I pay now and having guaranteed pricing and availability seems like a great idea to me. And if I need more than what I contracted, I could buy at a lessor discount.
