We really are small farm artisans and cannot update this inventory simultaneously as we sell at farmers markets or festivals. We have not had any problems yet...but we cannot guarantee that we have the full number of items stated as available. If it should happen that we cannot fill your order completely, we will call you to work out a solution.
