We have the opportunity to buy the neighbors barn and a field adjacent to it, it's closer to our house than to his and he is getting up in years and would rather have money than a barn. Anyway, if we get it I'd want to start some sort of home business. I don't want to raise animals, I have to be available at a moments notice to take care of aging parents and can't leave animals unattended. I considered a vegetable market, we would have plenty of land to plant and the barn would work for the stand but would take a tremendous amount of work to get it ready for that. We've thought about renting out the barn a field but would anyone want to rent it? I've considered raising bees for honey but dh is allergic to bee stings so that would mean the kids and I would have to do the work, how heavy is the lifting involved? Any other ideas?
