Sell Your Surplus With a Farmstand

Is your homestead overflowing with fresh produce, eggs or meat? Bravo! Learn how to sell vegetables, eggs and other extras at a farmstand or local farmers market.



With an honor-box system, a farmstand's products should be clearly priced, and shoppers are trusted to pay the right amount for their goods. Providing paper bags or boxes is a helpful touch.
