Nope i havent but if they have good prices id say why not. I have always sold to groenewold it helps that the driver for my route (Al ) is a great guy and fun to talk to. I'd like to know how your selling goes either way!

that sounds good to me, very comparable prices between your buyer and mine. And since yours is closer even better for you. i wish i would have hit it harder this year but theres always next year. congrats on the catches btw. Tony
