amy g. Posted July 3, 2009 Share Posted July 3, 2009 We met with an accountant today to discuss building a dairy and commercial kitchen. We want to sell milk and cheese and eggs and bread and soap to off set the cost of keeping so many animals. We also want to provide a place for the older kids to do real work for wages. Since we are going to sell food products, we will get liability insurance, and make customers sign a release form before allowing them to buy raw milk. We want to make sure that the business is kept seperate from our other assets so that if something happens, we can not lose our house or other things we have worked for. It looks like we will need to start a corporation instead of a sole proprietorship for protection. The next step is to meet with an attorney, which is going to be costly. Assuming we can do most of the filing and paperwork ourselves, what do you think the cost will be just for licenses and filing fees? I'm only looking for a ball park figure. Are their any major drawbacks in setting the dairy up as a corporation? Dh wants to lease the building and animals to the dairy so that the company actually has very few assets in it's name.
