I would set it up as a limited liability company, which provides the tax advantages of a sole proprietorship (income only taxed once) with the liability protection of a corporation
(personal assets protected from the creditors of the business).
I would choose a legal entity because any time there is food (which can become contaminated), animals (which can cause injury), or people milling about (can have an injury, particularly where it rains) there are the potential for lawsuits and I want my personal assets protected.
I don't want a corporation because I don't, apparently, intend to have investors and forming an LLC
is comparitively easy and inexpensive to accomplish in a short period of time.
