This is kind of it

DSC_0013

I've driven past this farm produce sign dozens of times without stopping. Often it was closed. More often I was on the wrong side of the road and it was kinda hard to turn around. It's sort of nearby here, but out of the way. 

This time I stopped.

It's just a little kiosk-type stall. An honesty box. Some farm eggs, jams and chutneys, potatos, free lemons (and you know how much I love those) and an honesty box.

And what's a farm without some excellent solar technology and a very old truck?

This is what I'm hoping for. 

A farm stall. An honesty box? Can I trust people not to sweep twenty bags of Marry Me Caramels into their boot and flee the scene?! Eggs. Honey. Coffee. Meat. Dairy. Bikkies. Jam. Pies. Farm produce. 

Fun, hey?

And you could come and visit!

We are a work in progress, but we are making progress.

Here's to making stuff happen. 

You too?

free lemons? they’re crazy. Gorgeous find. Farmstands are the new economy – they’re working well for many farmers i know… do it!

Lovely idea. Do it. But I still won’t be able to “drop by” unfortunately. LOL!

Free lemons?! I agree that these stalls are amongst my favourites, totally seasonal like a lucky dip, you never quite know what to expect- enjoy!

Thanks for sharing these photos, it reminded me of when I was little and when out traveling we would often stop at roadside stalls with honesty boxes 🙂 I hope you do try one at some time, I think you would have a great response with your yummy treats 🙂 and go the free lemons, how awesome! Regards, Ruth

I miss farm stands and honesty boxes. I wish they’d make a comeback. We do a lot of driving around SE Qld and hardly ever come across one anymore.

Gotta love free lemons!

I love honesty boxes!! I would so come and visit yours. Can’t wait till its up and running. A BIG thanks again for the bickies before we went away, they were a huge hit… not so much as gifts but as “share” presents so we didn’t miss out! See you soon xxx Ness

Honesty boxes, aahhh takes me back to childhood days when country drives meant coming home with fresh apples or oranges, the money for them being left in an honesty box.

I miss those days. I think you should give it a go. I figure it will only take a few days to see whether or not people are actually honest, hopefully in that time you haven’t lost out much if at all. Go on you know you want to try it 🙂

I wish you all the best for your venture though, I wish I lived close enough to come and have a look!!

Too cool. You could set up a webcam (even just a fake one not attached to anything!) to help people be honest with honesty boxes :-).

How much was their hay? I’m in the market… Might give them a call on that number.

I’d vote for mail order biscuits before an honesty box. We are crying out for some caramel kisses in Canberra. Crying out.
