    honor box farm stand

    going to do an sweet corn, corn stalk , indian corn and pumpkin sales this fall. need to work my real job, so only there nights and weekends.
    i have brought from them, and am honest for payment.

    going to bolt the payment box with lock . we know locks keep out honest people.
    thinking i might add a camera.

    got a neighbor across the street that is always on the look out.
    i am thinking, about a 1/4 or less will be stolen.

    what do you ll think....
    anyone else do this?

    We have done it here in rural NY state...just a jar with a lid so the customer could make his own change. Maybe got ripped off for a few bucks over several years..But we were only doing 10 bucks a day...

      My friend tried that with maple syrup. It lasted 2 days before some dick stole everything including the stand he got from the dump.

              Good luck. I hope it works. Things like that always help me build faith in others, which I hold very little of.

                      Opposite side of Cuse from me. I don't think you will have any issues.

                      Edit: If you do set up a camera, get a second for capturing plate numbers specifically.

                        I've always thought of those as a thing you do for the neighbors and they chip in a few bucks for a thank you. Not something I would go into to make money

                          what's his name in alaska that was always selling wood claimed to only have had a handful of thefts using the honor system for firewood over the course of several years and was doing it as a full time proposition.

                          full stand getting ripped off in 2 days is pretty wild county or somebody who found him in permit violation maybe?

                              All I know is New Yawk is full of crooks and mob. The mob will probably shake you down for a percentage.
