The other day we were driving through Rushville Nebraska when my mother told me about this farmer who sells his produce on the side of the road. He operates on the TRUST system. He trust you to leave your money in the box for what you take. Now….I have seen this on some of the cooking shows where people leave pies in a little hut in the front yard and you can walk in, pick your pie and leave your money in a box. But this is the first time I actually saw something like it in person.
I know it’s just a little kinda shabby vegetable stand….but to me it was the most beautiful stand for what it represented. TRUST in humankind. It made me so happy to see it I grabbed my phone to take a picture. And as I was standing there taking pictures I heard clunking getting closer and closer and around the corner came the farmer with his old wheel barrel. He came to load up his vegetables and collect his money box.
He was such a nice older gentleman. He said he has met many out of staters who stopped to take pictures of his stand. And all tell him how special his stand is because of the TRUST system he operates on. Many out of staters had talked to him about how this system couldn’t work in their city. Which is exactly what I told him. I enjoyed my talk with him and after we drove away I wished I had taken his picture next to his stand.
I did buy almost all of his produce up even though my sisters garden had almost everything he was selling. To drop my money in his box……made me feel good to be apart of the TRUST system
