"I'm going to buy a lawn tractor just for me," said Waylon Ion of Cooperstown.
The Valley Grove second-grader says he loves farming and being outside. This weekend he opened up his own little greenhouse shop in front of his parents' property on Lake Creek Road.
The young entrepreneur, according to his mother, is all about working hard and tending to animals and the earth alike. "I love it. It's better than being inside on a video game," Kim Ion about her young son.
The idea to build the stand grew out of Waylon's experiences last summer selling vegetables from a simpler set up at the end of the driveway.
For now the Waylon's Fresh Produce doesn't have regular hours but folks interested in supporting his quest to buy his own lawn mowing tractor can visit his Facebook page for shop times.
Waylon also holds the distinction of being the youngest member of the Franklin Area Chamber of Commerce, where he and his brother Will were the first to join the new youth program.
His mom admits the lawn tractor was something new on Saturday, so what he spends his money on may change, but first he has to reimburse his grandfather and father for the cost of building his fancy sales stand. It has been a lesson in business for the young man who only stands about four foot tall.
