We have a small CSA and a working farm. We sell our eggs for $5.00/dozen. I've seen other farms in our area sell for as low as $2 and as much as $6. We fill $5 is fair and covers feed and care and allows a modest profit. We can not raise enough eggs to keep up with the demand.Do you sell eggs if so what do you sell a dozen for.
We have about 30 good layers and pre-sale 10 dozen a week.
I highly recommend pre-selling your eggs, this is how we do it:
Customer prepays $50 for 10 dozen eggs. Then each Tuesday we set the eggs at the bottom of our road in an ice chest. I text each customer that their eggs are ready and they pick them up at their convenience. We have a index card we keep for them and write down when they pick up. When their 10 dozen are filled I let them know and if they want to continue they leave a check for $50.00 in the ice chest and start again. If they are out of town they let me know and we hold their eggs that week. The key is to get them use to eating your free range, back yard chicken eggs every week. They will be clamoring for your delicious eggs and not want to buy store bought eggs ever again, no matter the price.
