My standard price is £1.00 per half dozen. My mum and dad both refuse to pay less than £1.50 per half dozen.

Surplus eggs are given to neighbours,one couple are in their eighties.They always ask how much I want for them when I take them eggs.I never charge them.They did bring me a very nice bottle of wine to say Thankyou.Smile

I have been asking £1.50 for 6 since October - luckily the local feed supplier produced a leaflet exlaining why all their cereal based feeds were going up in price, so I photocopied it and put it in my egg boxes.

I asked everyone if they would pay the £1.50 and stay with the organic feed or

stay at £1 and change over to non-organic feed, just about everybody said they wanted to stay organic.

I use that all singing and dancing organic food with added Omega 3s and wont part with half a dozen eggs for less than £1.50 (was £1.20 until the last price increase). Best of all is the barter system where we swop with neighbours for tomatoes, lettuces or whatever. I place a far greater value on home grown anything.

I agree, Harrie, barter is better than selling
