So… having a farm based business is interesting. The question I get asked more than anything is: Do you pay sales tax? And this is often followed by comments along the lines of suggesting my farm business is a hobby… which makes me wonder why. At every market or farm stand I set up – I am a single, middle-aged woman standing in front of a sign that reads “Thompson Family Farm” and I offer stuff for sale… produce and a whole host of pepper-related products that are not only made by me, the recipes are mine as well. I have always been a “fly by the seat of my pants” cook. I just finally took the time to write things down so I have consistency in my products.
This is one of the millions of reason I don't use chemicals on my farm... this, right here. We have done such a good job of destroying our eco system and I'm hellbent on doing what I can to fix it.
