I have heard it suggested selling shares _through_ food-coops and
farmer's marketing coops to subscribers. Selling _to_ those organizations
certainly sounds like a creative possibility.

I would imagine there ought to be many schools, restaurants and distributors
whould would entertain the idea of subscribing. Success would depend on
the openmindedness and dietary flexibility of their clients.
