    Saucier,Ms.
    Long story short.........I have been approached by a convience store wa nting to purchase fresh free range chicken eggs.......at first they mentioned 5 dozen a week to start now wanting half dozen/6 count size as well about 4 of them per week to see how they sell......I sell eggs for $2.00 a dozen just to people I work with and they provide the carton...... I understand thet they are in business to make a profit, as well I am too.......those who sell comerically,how much, approximately, does it cost to package 1 dozen eggs and get them in the store WITHOUT your profit?

    just trying to figure out how much I should charge per dozen


    also what, if any, regulations by the states(MS hopefully) should I be aware of(licenses/permits are involved) and any other cost I may not be thinking of?

    thanks

    Your product is so much better than the other eggs they carry.
    Charge about twice the price of old, infertile, cage produced eggs.
    You will get it, especially from repeat customers.

    Regulations - in my state (MD) you have to register your flock to sell eggs, and it is free.
