    Stone Family Farm is the name
    We're just a stones throw away is the slogan

    What do you think. I'm writing up a business plan currently that way maybe I can find some angel investors that are willing to help fund some of it.

    We've found a 40 acre farm with a 1901 house on it for 90,000. We are planning on have two to three horses for farm use, swine for slaughter, chickens/ducks/turkey for eggs and eating, goats and cows for dairy purposes (milk,butter, cheese, yogurt) and possibly sheep for wool and lambs for well eating. All animal babies will be up for sale as well. Then we are also planning on actual produce farming, maybe some orchard type trees (apples/cherries/pears). We'd like to open a small family farm store on the property so we can sell our goods but also we plan on trying to get the local grocers to buy our products. We've also discussed getting a small refridgerated truck so we can deliver.

    Hey I like the name...After all 'Stone' is my last name...lol
    My mom kept trying to come up with a 'Stone' name for our farm when we were trying to think of one...but we already picked 'Run-A-Muck Ranch' as our farm name....

    I figured short and sweet was the way to go...lol. Run-a-muck ranch I love your avatar.....Goonies never say die! It's also weird I've not met anyone else with the same last name as me....except my husband (we both had the same last name and he and my dad have the same birthday....what a qua-winky-dink)

    Where are you from....My husbands family is mostly in West Virginia. He was born in BlueField, West Virginia, but his mom and dad movied up here when he was 2 weeks old so he's only visited a few times when younger....There are a few "Stone's" around here (well in the phone book anyway), but none are related to us, nor have we meet....(We live in Wisconsin)

    his family is from indianan and mine is from arizona. My grandfather actually shortened his name littlestone to stone so it wouldn't sound so "indian" So I'm only second generation born with that name. The big running joke was that when i was little I swore when I got married I wouldn't change my name.... Instead I just married someone with the same last name....lol. [​IMG]

    Quote:How funny....Jason's great great (not sure how many greats) grandfather also changed his last name(it was Barnett--sp??)...When he came over on a ship to the USA he was the mason on the ship(and of course used a spinning/sharpening stone), well everyone called him 'Stone' and that's what he changed his last name to. I know there's more to the story than what I had typed, but don't wanna get details mixed up so didn't type it...lol
