Today a new problem.  The Suncoast Co-op announced it is being dissolved. This has been my sole source of marketing for the last year and a half.  I made contact with Spring Hill Locally Grown, two days ago, and today I drove to the location given only to find a personal residence with people who had no idea of what I was talking about.

What is needed is an organization with a high volume of traffic operating out of a local Flea Market, who will handle all marketing for a percentage of the sales.

Also I see, one can not depend upon only one source of marketing.

Hi everyone- I'm doing research for a potential business idea. Would you mind answering a couple of questions to help out a local entrepreneur?

The last question in the survey asks you to provide your email address. If you'd like to know more details about what I'm working on, please leave your email. Thanks!!!

Property is zone agricultural.  One rental is a "vehicle" and licensed as such. I require no permits for any agricultural activities. Property is not in a "corporate municipality".  The concept is one of liberty, freedom and self sufficiency!  The things held in the highest esteem former generations.

Bring your focus back on the AP ( that is what this wall is for)  good luck getting a permit to have a COMMERCIAL AP business and two rental homes in the same zoning.

The major problem is the de industrialization of this nation.  I look at this property as a complete entity  with two "rental units". Current rents are $575 & $475 or maximum of $1,050 @ month.  The aquaponics farm goal is to produce $3,333 a month for a total maximum gross of $4,383 a month. Under normal conditions value 100 x the monthly gross (1%) or $438,300.  Base on existing "comps" value is more like  .37% x 100 gross X the monthly gross of a value of $162,171.  I invested $125,000 cash in this property in 2007.  Todays market value without the aquaponics farm is about $46,250.

So to put it another way, the value of my aquaponics farm that will gross $40,000 a year should have a business value of $115,000 to $116,000. That of course is lock stock and barrel including an acre and half of land.
