First dozen sold!


Now that most of the hens are laying daily we're getting about 5 eggs a day. That's leaving us with a little surplus of farm fresh, naturally grown eggs. On Sunday I was mentioning this to a friend at church. She asked if we'd sell her a dozen and how much would we charge! I said $2 for a mixed dozen (a great price) and she agreed. That's a great price for her and us - way cheaper than the grocery store price for organic eggs and it only costs us about 50-60 cents/dozen to raise the eggs!

Monday I dropped off her eggs and took her empty egg carton home with me. Kind of like the milkman. When she needs more I bring her eggs and take the empty carton (recycling). So, the first dozen has been sold.

Since Holdyn feeds and cares for the lovely ladies and gent daily that the money will go in his savings account (along with his can recycling funds).

Now, we've got three male goats for sale. Two babies and an adult. Anybody need eggs or a goat?

We're farming now,huh? Coming soon to Vaughn Farms - turkeys!

Wow! Great for you guys. My son recycles cans too for money. It is a good life lesson in patience and diligence.

I would so buy both the goats and the eggs if I (A) had land to put the goats on and (B) lived closer...aarrrggghhh...then we could see each other as much as we wanted to as well!

I am proud of my farmer friends and kiddos though...way to go!!

We've started buying eggs from a friend and I <3 it! We're getting like, 2 dozen at a time so we can make sure we always have them. I wish y'all lived closer or we had a bigger yard...I want chickens and a goat!

Beautiful eggs! I wish we could buy the goats, but we don't have a fence yet.
