Amen to that. "Local" will get your foot in the door but if you hand them a pile of crap in ziploc bags, you just ruined it for yourself and the next three people walking through the door.
You first year, you'll have so little that you are best giving it away. If you can, get it pelletized or at least in what ever form you plan to sell. Make sure they are properly vacuum packed with a gas flush in a UV proof bag. Get them tested so you can show at least alpha and oil levels. Then try to get a few ounces in their hand so they can open, rub them, sniff them and then look at the lab results. Expect to do the same the next year, too. By year three, you may have a few customers ready to buy and you'll have the supplies ready to go.
