I build this 2 years ago.


Inside:

Like to do a pole barn next, about 20X30.  Complete with sewer, water, electrical.  The works.

I'm thinking that with my wine and cheese,  it would be perfect.

A Man-Fort!!

Wayne, looks like a nice place for wine & cheese making, 20x30 ft would be huge.

"I'm so done with California"

Yep.  I bailed about 6 months ago.  Now I'm going to get an IOU for my tax return and now they're messing with my unemployment.

Trying to start over again.

My husband would love that, we just have no more room.  Now may he could extend his woodworking shed some - he's already done it once, why not again?

I actually thought about putting my wine/cheese operations out here...

Would cost a fortune to run water and sewer to this...

Wayne I can run all that for you, I'll just come out. I do plumbing and electrical for a living. The hard part is digging a trench below the frost line, 18".

Dude, 

How damn cool would it be if you came out here for a weekend of cheese makeing and workshop planning.
I have plenty of my wine, and you can bring some of your mead.

That would rock

Hey no better time as I work is at a crawl. Do you have snow? Because I ain't digging no trench in frozen ground, hell carbide tips on backhoes might even break in frozen ground. I guess we could drink lots of wine and pee outside to soften up the ground.

Just figured out a way to sell cheese legally at a Farmers Market.
2 ways.
the first I can't do and that involves using gold or silver as a barter item.  they are not considered currency anymore.  But I can't afford, not do people carry gold or silver.

The other, have the customer purchase "tokens" aka poker chips, then use the tokens to exchange for your cheese.  The buyer is purchasing tokens that they are then exchanging for your cheese.  No "currency" is changing hands for the exchange of your cheese.

Any thoughts?

Are these ideas you came up with or found out from someone at the famers market?

No offense but these are run arounds for the same end game and the law will see right through them. It has the same conotation as selling a customer a pencil and giving them a free bottle of vodka. If the famers market doesn't need to have a permit or copy of a professional kitchen that the cheese was made in then don't worry about any of it and just sell it.
