A scent that is not unpleasant to humans, or can barely be detected by us, but one that animals definitely don't want anything to do with. You'd have to look up what that may be and hopefully something you can put together yourself so that it's very inexpensive, but being that animals have such amazing abilities to smell, I think it may be a solution to make it uninviting for animals to check out your table and its wares.

Maybe a little fence would work for the dogs? it's less offputting for customers to have to open a gate than a door.

Good luck with your deer. We have black tailed deer here and they'll eat anything and everything. I don't suppose I blame them, since all those yummy veggies are, well, yummy, but I'm with you: I'd like some too. We went for a fence too, and so far, so good.

You can host other permaculture enthusiasts who will work for you.
I have an affinity for community living and see a lot of benefits... in that it is the epitome of permaculture. I think it's the answer to all societies ills ( of course, I'm an idealist)
But if I could... I'd come down there and help you 😊💕
