EarthLady: I post and sell mine at work for 2/doz I tried taking ad down for a week and putting u p t 3/doz-no takers. At 2/doz can sell as many as I can supply. Im surious what others sell theres for as well? Also, I know we had a discussion before on whether there had to be lic or insurance to sell eggs-did we ever come to a conclusion? I live in WI but work in MN-so that may change things too if there is a license requirement?
The conclusion was/is........ You don't need a license to sell eggs at your home/farm. Unless of course the amount is I believe over $5000 or something like that. BUT that means only at your home/farm. That does not mean you can even deliver the eggs to work or a neighbors. I had that discussion with the woman at the Dept of Ag or whoever I talked to a few years ago.
This means that in order to sell even at a farmers market you need a license. BS if you ask me.
I remember asking her and what is the penalty/fine if you are "caught" selling without a license....... she said nothing !!!
So that being said.......... I sell mine for $2 a doz.. Duck eggs for $3.50 (that just went up from $3) I too tried to increase the price for my chicken eggs...... no dice especially up here and being so far out. I sell my eggs to a few local bars and they have their regular customers that buy them.
We are in the process of getting our farm LLC (Limited Liability Com) so that would at least protect the farm and the few assets we have should someone get sick from our eggs. Or at least make it more difficult to sue us personally.
Just need to find the $130 to do it. So maybe instead of buying a tent and mattress for the bash I should get my LLC ???? I keep putting it off.Oh wait, I don't have the money for the tent either right now !!! Guess I'll need to sell more eggs !!
