Are you actually running your business as a business?
Do you pay commercial rates for your utilities? Do you have a current environmental impact statement on the impact of your business operations on the local environment? The increased pollution from the traffic to/from your property?
Do you monitor the pollution and run off from your trees and the effect on the water supply, local community, etc. Have you had all your produce tests and certified that it contains no harmfull levels of any chemicals, pesticides, etc?
Do you have all the necessary state, county and city licenses to operate your business? Do you pay the appropriate taxes?
