Should You Use a Scale?

How Is The Scale Weighing In? Good or Bad? Photo Credit: Reed Petersen
It almost seems like we have always sold certain crops like garlic, shallots and onions by weight, but there was a time before we got our scale when we sold by volume only.

It seems more equitable for both parties to sell by weight, especially when various vegetables vary a lot in size.

The effect on sales was...

an immediate gain.

I think this was because our customers were more comfortable buying just one or two shallots, for example instead of a half pint.

The $300 for our scale paid for its self in about a month. We got a good brand and it has worked faithfully for over 10 years.
