How much do YOU sell your eggs for??? - Page 2

post #11 of 19

I checked the supermarket prices yesterday. $2 for factory produced eggs, $4 for "free run" which means the chickens all run around in a covered bard, weather permitting.
I charge $4 for free range*, fed with any bugs & greens they get plus commercial, veggie only, non-medicated lay pellets and oyster shell lovingly hammered into bits by me.

So what do I call my eggs... they are fed the natural purina (no animal by products) no meds, in chicken tractors that are moved daily?  Do ya'll make your own signs or is there a place online to order a nice road sign?  Thanks:)

I haven't started selling yet but i will advertise as home grown or fresh eggs.    You can't call them organic unless you jump thru the gov. hoops.  It's quite extensive from what i understand.

I call my eggs farm fresh naturally fed. I can't call them organic, and I don't feed any type of medication stuff so I just call them naturally fed. There is a small screen printing shop here in our small town. They made a road sign for me.

My husband and I live part time in Brooklyn, and we paid $6/dozen for "home-raised" chicken eggs from Brooklyn.  I realize these are city prices, but we were buying two dozen every weekend smile

If any of your friends have teenage sons (or daughters) with a year or two of woodshop, see if they'll make you a sign for cheap.

In Richmond, VA they're selling for $3.50 - $4.00/dozen at the farmers' market, and in rural northwest PA (outside of New Castle), my boyfriend's sister sells them for $2.00/dozen.  When I lived in Washington, DC, they would go for about $5.00 at the farmers' markets.  Check around and see what others in your area are charging.

BTW, the Richmond farmers' market people advertise their eggs as "farm fresh", "naturally raised", or "free range"--depending on the vendor.

Right now I am getting $2.00 per dozen chicken eggs and $3.00 to $5.00 per dozen quail eggs. I think I am going to start selling my quail eggs for $4.00 a dozen. I am getting quite a few each day and our fridge is full!
