  3. Get your Federal Permit? How long did it take?

    To Jessica and Falling Rock, Thank you for sharing your experiences. I am sure that our (relatively) short approval time was in part from the experience agents have received from processing previous applications like yours. For that I do honestly thank all the pioneers ahead of us in the game. As was pointed out on averages, we are just one point on the graph. I would in no way imply that anyone else could expect a similar timeframe. I did feel it important to post our data point for others to see. Our application like I am sure most, had some straightford parts and others that were a bit tricky. I humbly say that the only special skill I claim is a little familiarity with government bureaucrats. I spent 25 years as a consultant in another heavily regulated industry (aviation) and learned to speak federal bureaucracy...... Like most startups we are working with a budget so we made the decision not to use a DSP consultant for the application. In no way do I mean to take away from the value of a good consultant, we justed decided to save our consulting budget for assistance in production issues after the DSP approval. We must have done something right because we were part of the minority of applications that did not generate any correction requests. We simply reviewed, rechecked and rechecked again the submission. Thanks to all in the forum for ideas we have received during the last few months. Tim

  5. Special Use on Ag Zoned property

    Help, Looking for some info from anyone who was granted Specal Use in an Ag Zoned property as an Agri-Business. Our county zoning folks have said that they will only grant us the Special Use Ag zoning if we can prove the majority (80%) of our ingredients are grown by us on the property. For those of you out there operating in rural areas, what percentage of your ingredients do you yourself grow? My thanks to all ahead of time.
