I am looking for some information about registering a name with the Department of State. I am mainly curious with people who have done this in Arizona, but if people from other states have information or advice, I would be glad to hear it. We don't have a "farm" to to speak right now. Next year we will have property with a nice sized garden, a chicken coops and 2 dogs. We plan on selling the veggies and the eggs. Possibly a goat or something else, at a later date. My husband and I decided on a name and we want to make sure we can get it for our property. I guess my question is: would we qualify for a "farm" to be in our name? My next question is that I have done a little research about registering the name and purchasing a trademark. When we purchase a trademark is it a one time fee? I am confused to which I would have to apply for. Here is the link I was reading off of (http://www.azsos.gov/business_services/Fees.htm). If any one has some free time and could help educate me, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
