Best way to sell eggs?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

What are some good ways to sell eggs? I have sold some to neighbors and people I know, but I still have way too many eggs in my fridge! I have considered craigslist and putting up fliers at the feed store and perhaps putting a sign in my front yard. What works best for you guys?

I'm doing the same things your are to build a customer base.  I'm also selling a good bit at work and to some family friends.  A farmers markets that may be worth your wile to try.  They're a little expensive for me and the small number of eggs that I keep on hand but if you have a lot of eggs, a ten or fifteen dollar site fee may work ok for you. I also found a free on-line site where people look for organic or local products to buy.  Go to www.localhens.com and list your farm for free.  It may help you in sales too. I don't have face book but some of my friends have linked the "Local hens" site on their pages to help them find me.  Luck.

Put up a sign in front of your house or at the end of your street(better if it is a heavily used street) are a couple ideas. Instead of buying a spot at a farmers market, visit one and talk to some of the vendors if they are interested in selling your eggs and give them a cut. That is what I used to do sort of, a woman who runs an organic share farm bought my eggs to resell at the local farmers market.

I have the opposite problem.  I cant get enough eggs to fill all the orders from friends and family.  I have24 birds, 5 N H reds, 5 buff orps, 5 lt bramahs, 4 blk australorps, 5 barred rocks.  We are at 37 weeks old, and average about 125 eggs a week.  We just keep a list and fill it according to order.  Some folks have to wait a week or more to get their eggs.  Word will get round and you will have the same problem as me.

Good luck

Cousin dave, I hope I will soon have your problem instead of having 20 dozen eggs piling up in my fridge! Maybe your location has something to do with it? Where do you live?
