For what it is worth I have to agree with Jake. Farmer to Farmer sales, news, discussion seem most desirable. If I need some thing from Harris Seeds I know how to find them. Like wise for others businesses.
Keep up the good work farmers

From Jake Guest
   I don't know how other folks feel, but I'm getting a little nervous about commercial ads on  our list serve. I realize that Harris is a paying member of VVBGA, and I really appreciate the fact that they are supportive and come to our meetings and all that, but I think we've got a precedent going here that I do not feel comfortable with. What I suspect will happen is that other vendors will recognize this as a great marketing opportunity,join the organization (if they haven't  already), and start placing ads. You  can see where this could go. Do we want this? What do people think? I also realize that by bringing this subject up, I may have started what could be a longwinded online chatter, which also seems against the utilitarian spirit of this site. So I'll shut up, and lets keep it brief.
