Beer or Eggs

When I gave a workshop at the Vermont NOFA Winter Conference on our winter production of eggs and mentioned what we sell a dozen eggs for, quite a few folks gasped at the price ($5.00 a doz at the Farmers Markets). They said they could never sell eggs from their farms for that price. I suggested they ask their customers what they pay for a 6 or 12 pack of beer (it will likely be more than a dozen local eggs). Then point out to the customer all of the things they can use those eggs for: baking, scramble, sunnyside up, poached, hard boil, egg salad sandwich, pound cake, omelet, pancakes, waffles, deviled eggs....

Those local eggs are better for you than beer, and you don't need to show ID to purchase them!

For more egg related info from our farm, check out a recent Burlington Free Press article about our winter egg production.

That's great -folks out here in the NW are selling eggs for $7 a dozen and barely breaking even. Your prices are so low out there.
