If I were planning something like you describe I’d be looking around for smaller local providers where I could deal direct as much as possible. One thing I’d do is decide what my range is going to be, especially whether I can purchase direct from the farm. I grew up down in South Jersey (NJTP exit 1 then head southeast) and I know there’s local beef produced there. I assume the same is true up toward the northwest corner of the state, out towards Phillipsburg or Dover. I’d spend some weekends cruising looking for farms or local butchers or slaughterhouses. Might be able to play direct from farm as a marketing hook. Just a thought, my thought is it would be lots of fun doing the research, and cruising farms on the weekend with your son teaching him how supply chains work. YMMV of course.
