Big business fatcats often muscle their way into communities at the expense of good small business owners and the consequences can be dire with: less personalised service, less choice, and surprisingly higher prices.

A classic example in my area with all the consequences above is in the pet and farm animal supplies category where big business franchises such as: Pet Barn, and Pet Stock have arisen directly competing with local smaller family businesses.

The purpose of this forum is to list small businesses related to self-sufficiency and recommended by our self-sufficient community.

Please adhere to the following guidelines:
  • Make a separate thread for each individual business.
  • Only one business listing in this forum (don't double up - use our forum search and similar threads feature to check).
  • Any member can list a small business (and yes you can list your own business).
  • Businesses need to be related to our community in some way. For example: farming supplies; pet supplies; food retailers/hobby farms (smallgoods, olive oil, etc); equipment retailers (sporting, farm, building); animal breeders; individual eBay shops/sellers or other online retailers; and many more.
  • No unnecessary "bumping" of threads (ie, commenting just for the sake of getting the listing to the top).
  • No big business please.
  • Any state, any country.
  • Please give a small "about" and reason/s why you recommend the business.
I hope by listing small businesses here we can "do our bit" to bring attention to self-sufficient related businesses and help them to garner more support within our own communities.
