Several years ago we got together with other CSA farms on our block (farm block being described a 50 + mile area) to order plastic crates. We each were able to have our name printed on to them. As we ordered a truck load we got a good price.
As there is always an exchange of produce between farm and our crates do tend to accumulate on other farms. Last week we took Riverdog Crates to exchange with Brian for ours that they had. The exchange went peacefully with no incidents.
