Its hard all around right now. Even the best known functional boro torch workers are struggling. The Pot game is changing as big business takes over and will change drastically as the FDA gets involved. Be careful what you ask for......

Torch working can certainly be more economical and sustainable in the long run. About 8 years ago I had the chance to go either way and I decided not to tie myself to a full hotshop. Haven't made a single pumpkin since 2012 when I did production for someone else to get my shop up and running. I haven't regretted it one bit. To each his own.
