A place for Barter posts, great and small. 

If you have a particular thing that you wish to barter, please do a post under "Buy sell swap" for that item.  That will work better for you.

Yes, I do use the Barter system when I can. Nothing regular though. I am at the moment swapping Pine Mulch for a few plants. Though I consider I am the winner here, nevertheless I guess this is a form of Barter.

Lets talk about barter. How can I buy smarter with barter.

I do not pay for chook , sheep or dry dog food, I barter.

18 chooks,12 sheep and 3 dogs + share 

I barter bread,fruit and veg scrap,labour,services,bobcat,tool hire,eggs,mulch etc ect.

Who else is on this good old fashioned path?

My own comment is that I love "the barter."  I try to do it with an open heart - if I have excess then people can have it.  My hope is that they will repay me later. 

I also seem to have developed a role where people bring me their excess produce.  I process it and give some to them and keep some for myself.  That's been working a treat lately. 

Another great idea and it doesn't have to be just excess produce as Mark has stated. Not only do you avoid waste and the taxman but you generate goodwill and tap into people's experience which can be invaluable.

and get to eat some really top notch tucker!
