    hello I have been selling my eggs for 2:00 dollars but then everyone was saying that was to much. so then I lowered the price down to a dollar 50 but now some of the stores in the area have lowered eggs down to 59 cents a dozen so I don't know what to sell them for. thanks

    2.50. And I sell them all... you have a premium product. . Don't compare your eggs to store eggs

    in VA eggs are sold for around 3$ i'd sell them for about how much most stores sell them, maybe add a little since the chickens have a good life and aren't in cages

    That's a question with many different answers depending on which part of the country you're from and what eggs sell for in your area. It's best to compare apples to apples. Find out what others with similar eggs (for example free range or organic) are selling them for in your area and then price your eggs similarly.

    Again, there are variations. Are you near one of the larger cities? Eggs usually go for more there. Or a rural area where there is lots of egg production going on? I'm in the latter. Most of our neighbors have flocks and my extended family gets eggs and I do trade eggs for other things, but the most common price seems to be 2.50.

    Anything someone has that you want and they want eggs. Usually vegetables or fruit from their gardens I don't grow, baked goods, sometimes even clothes. Makes both of us happy. [​IMG]

    In my area (NC) free range organic eggs (which is what you sell) go for $3-5/doz. Store eggs are much cheaper, but they sit on the shelf while those sold by individuals sell so fast you better get your order in quick. You are way too low. Can't compare store bought with yours
