Farm Friday— Farm Stands Part 2

Farm Stand

Why we need a farm stand! MAIN REASON— We have an abundance of eggs! We can only eat so many. We also have lambs and sometimes pigs to sell. It would also be nice to sell/give away some of our vegetables and jams.

We could also leave some information on the stand like, when the lambs will be processed, pricing, what we feed our animals, and some nutritional information on our products.

Having a stand at our house would be very convenient! We have a lot of traffic on our road.

We don’t always have enough stuff to justify selling at a farmers market though. We would spend more money in fees than we would make. Plus lugging a baby to the market and watching him would be tough. Having it at the house, with a sign saying “fresh eggs” will also keep me accountable. I can’t let my neighbors down! Not going to the farmers market— who cares!
