Hello Friendly folks! I'm Wei wei and welcome to my blog! I'm an Urban Garden enthusiast, Fashion Designer, and mini Movie buff. I would love to chat with new people so leave me a message, or follow for some daily fun!
I just saw the price for eggs and I…well my heart sorta sank. At $0.14 per egg a carton (12eggs) is $1.82
This doesn’t make sense to me though…how can a quality chicken farmer compete with a price like that?
I’m thinking to myself: What consumer wouldn’t automatically compare prices between the more expensive (natural, organic, antibiotic free, free range, cruelty free eggs…etc.) at $3-6 a carton.
To large Mass market eggs that are not required to meet all the above qualities at $1.82?
It’s so hard now a days to decide quality over price. Especially if you don’t have the means to do so.
Personally I calculated the cost of raising chicks with all the good “natural stuff”, and the grazing land to go with it…(in hopes of one day selling some eggs). I really do come out at $4.50 as my bottom line!
I don’t know…if I become a farmer it will be a struggle. But I still want to do it…cuz I feel it’s right to help offer more quality choices to my community.
