First Independent Project

So tomorrow is the Earth Market in Hamra and it is me and my husband's first independent venture if you may. We are very excited but also worried at the same time. We've been preparing and trying to figure out what to take and what to leave finally we settled on: Eggs, Milk, Cheese, Honey (with and without comb), Lemons, Labne, Laban and Karishe. Seems enough but then again there's the quantities coz we don't want to take too much or too little but i guess that's what the first day is all for. 
We really hope this will help in the launch of the farm's name or at least let us gain some repetitive customers since that's what it's all about. The point is for the end customer to get to know his supplier directly, whether you are buying dairy, meat, vegetable and fruits or bread, it's always best to know the  farmer or buy directly from the source, this would help you know what you're eating and help those passionate suppliers sell and stay in business thus maintaining some heritage for the country as a whole. 
you look around these days and there's a Starbucks and Mcdonalds practically everywhere, countries culture is swept down the drain which is what we all need to work on upholding otherwise it's all corporate businesses with nothing but money on their minds and certainly not your health!
Anyways, back to the topic, i really hope this first attempt of ours kicks off and helps us set some grounds on what we have in mind for the business. I mean sure i'm gonna have to wake up at 5:30 am for it (which is usually the husbands' job) so i sure do hope it will be worth it!
