Organic Eggs for $1.00 a dozen!

United States
June 29, 2007 9:08pm CST
My husband and our friend went fishing a couple of weeks ago and on the trip back home they encountered a sign stating the sale of fresh organic eggs for $1.00 a dozen. What a bargain. They stopped and bought 2 dozen eggs. The eggs were fresh and very tasty. We have been going back every week for more. Today when the guys went back for more eggs the man selling the eggs told them a story of a person who haggled over the price of the eggs. He said that this person said that he was over-charging for the eggs. What a laugh that is. These people sell their organic eggs for at least $1-$1.50 less than other people I have seen charge for fresh eggs. These people are humble family and live frugally. I have decided to help them out by trying to sell some of the eggs for them to the people I know. A dollar a dozen is a great bargain for organic eggs.

My Parents just give them away. Another local family sell them for 75 cents a dozen. But that is just in our area. Most people raise their own chickens and so they have eggs around here. We moved into our home that we live in now and cant have all the farm animals that we would love to have. I really miss having hogs and other animals to butcher in the fall.

The folks now have so many chickens that they are also selling them. I have told my husband that I would love to have chickens. But, I don't think the neighbors would love us to have them.

Why do they call it Organic Eggs? Is there any other alternative? I have read in an e-mail a few months back a process of creating artificial eggs out of chemicals which eventually looks like and tastes like the real ones and are relatively cheaper. Is this story true? Are there any stores selling artificial eggs in your area?

For organic eggs I would gladly pay that. Also to help a small business that is what good. Those that haggle do not know of the true nature of organics and small business. You are good to help out since they really don't need those tightwads. Good luck with that!!!

I wish I could buy organic eggs for a dollar dozen. I pay double that in the grocery store for half that amount for organic eggs. I'm not sure why people choose to haggle over such things, especially when folks are just trying to scrape by. I think it's wonderful that they are being so generous as they could probably sell them for more money if they wanted to.

Wow, I've grown accustomed to having to pay more for organic foods. This is quite a bargain indeed. I cannot believe that haggler. Has this person been in a grocery store lately? You can't buy the grocery store eggs for a dollar, and they aren't as good! It's insane. I'm proud for you that you found them and would buy them if they were anywhere near me.

That's more than a bargain... it's a give-away price, for organic fresh eggs. They always taste so much better when fresh, and I don't know how the farmer can make a profit selling them at that price. I think he was hoodwinked by the haggler! It's very good of you to sell some of the eggs for him. I think he deserves all the help he can get.. bless him.

The haggler wanted to give him less than $1. What a cheap guy.

I to sell my fresh eggs and people have left $2.00 for me and taken a dozen and do this all the time. I have also given the eggs away to others. When I sell them I ask for $1.25 because $1.00 just wasn't making the payment for the food I had to purchase for them. I also know people who would haggle over that price, those kind just want everything for free. Makes me sick to see or hear those stories. Pathetic really!

A dollar a dozen for eggs is a bargain anyways, even if they weren't organic eggs. My best wishes for them and for you in helping them find more sales.

$1 a dozen is great for any eggs- organic or not- Tell me- what is the difference? These chickens aren’t giving what to have their eggs be labeled organic? I’m kind of clue less with this one- You know you find hecklers everywhere- from yard sales to egg sales- Some people just like to complain and get a better deal on everything- I would have said to them- You know what you’re right- they aren’t $1 a dozen anymore- For you guys you can have them for $2 a dozen-

$1.00 is a great deal for non organic eggs. I would love to find something like that around me. It is better to have your money going back into your local area rather than lining walmarts pockets.

I think that is a great price for eggs since the stores where I live charge more than that for eggs. I would be buying a couple dozen of those eggs if they offered it to us for that amount. I love eggs very much so it would not a problem for me. Some people out there are not happy with anything. I have not tried organic eggs but should try them.

I don't think that they should be complaining about a dollar for a dozen eggs. You usually can't find them for this price in the stores except sometimes when they go on sale. Fresh ones are so much better too. My friends sell theirs for a dollar a dozen too, and they sell them as quickly as they get them. I'm sure they would sell out even at a slightly higher price.

That's a good price for organic eggs. We pay £1.60 a dozen for free range eggs, which I thought was pretty good. I have learned the hard way not to buy barn/battery eggs, not a nice reaction to the stomach. There is even a difference in the color of the yolk between organic and battery eggs. If I can afford it, I always will buy organic as it is better for you. It's nice to know that some people are not out to rip everyone off by charging too much for their product. I hope the haggler leaves the family alone. It is nice of you to help them out by trying to sell them to people you know.

That is a bargain...eggs like that are usually over 2.50. That reminds me..recently I was in Chicago, and I saw "Vegetarian eggs" for sale. That struck me as rather funny. I guess the chickens were vegetarian..although I thought chickens always ate vegetarian anyway, alot of grain and corn. I miss country living...I used to be able to buy milk straight from the neighbor's cow for 1.50 a gallon. Sometimes it tasted funny, because of what the cows may have got into, but it was always wonderful. I'd skim the cream off the top, and make butter out of that. Or fresh yogurt. Nothing in the world like it.
