...that places like this still exist. In a barnyard in Ohio, this family sells their fresh produce using the honor system. Prices per pound are listed and an old scale hangs from an upright so you can weigh your purchase. In the wagon is a jar to place your money. No one was home and the jar was stuffed with money.

Back when I had my farm (9 years ago) I used to put corn stalks, pumpkins and straw out with the honor system. I'd come home to a full jar of money and even a couple of times an IOU from someone who was going home for the weekend and didn't have cash on them. They'd pay the IOU on Monday on the way back thru. I loved having that feeling that I knew I could trust people.
A man down the road from us sells his Mums, pumpkins, stalks...etc the same way and now I love knowing that I am an honest person paying for my everystuff too!!
In Lancaster County, PA, you will find this type of thing everywhere, especially in the New Holland area. It's a different kind of people there.
Yes, different in many ways. It is a real shame that there are not more honest people in the world like them.
