This is not an SL4 topic, but I gather that the tax fiend won't necessarily
leave you alone even in such a case. Apparently if you grow certain crops
for your own use, rather than different crops for sale (the profits of
which will be used to buy the first kind of produce from another farmer),
you're taxed on the increment saved. I'll have to check the details with my
tax expert, but the law might need to be tweaked to allow an untaxed
transition to the compleat home robot.
