As I was growing up on my family’s diversified farm in Central Nebraska during the eighties, an era of double digit interest rates and high farmer debt, trying to make a living via agriculture appeared to be a fool’s game and a thing of the past.  If the economy didn’t do you in, it seemed that the weather would.  Our entire living was based on things out of our control.  Yet, my dad would always say, “People will always need to eat”, and he seemed content with that.  Moreover, he was proud to be a farmer and what he helped give life to from the earth.

There are others (celery can be 24ct, 30ct, 36ct and even 48ct which is very small size) but safe to say when you read thru the guide you will see it marked as count most of the time, but we even have some product lines listed...
