Organic Pricing

Leave a comment

This post will be short and sweet.

Many members wonder if they are pricing their products well and are interested in knowing what others are selling for. ACORN has tried to collect this information locally, but at the height of production, no one is really answering/returning our phone calls!

In the absence of local information, we thought to share with you other pricing resources from across North America which will provide some guidance. If you know of others, let us know. But at the end of the day, you should really know what your Cost of Production is, because staying in business is Priority #1.
