What really gets me as a roadside/farm marketer, are the 'deceivers' selling produce from off-farm and calling it homegrown. Yea, sure, it was grown at someone's home, just not theirs. I/we try to always make the distinction (and often an explanation) between homegrown and local.
Then, they want me to meet the price of the 'homegrown' veggies at the supermarket.
That's a quandary most of us face; we are torn between being
successful and being honest non-deceivers. It seems most of us MUST
chose a grey area between being completely honest and being maximally
I am tempted here to launch into the question of whether organic
growers are "deceivers". I resist that temptation.
