What is a Farm Stand?

Ever have one of those "aha" moments? I had one recently when I thought hard about what is a "farm stand"? Is it something physical or something "virtual"? I struggled with for some time after Mary suggested we finally get a farm stand going. I wanted to get it started quickly, and we just don't have the cycles right now to do all the stuff required for a "traditional" stand (display case, physical area).

 What I realized was that a farm stand can be as simple as committing to being available at a routine/recurring time and place for customers to purchase products. (Obviously, you gotta have the products too.) It's really that simple. Of course, you can get much more elaborate than that, with a dedicated building, glass front cases, cash register, bathrooms, etc. but fundamentally it's just a committment to have products available to the customers at a specified time/time interval.
