To Market , To Market

Well, after months and months of waiting, our hens are finally laying enough eggs for us to market. I ordered these egg cartons and got busy with "Photo Shop" making labels for each. From here they get delivered to everyone on our "egg list". Fresh, free-ranging chicken of antibiotics, hormones....and layed by happy, healthy chickens. This is just one more step towards our eventual goal of removing ourselves from the food grid. We hope to become a source for wholesome, organic produce, eggs, jams, and honey rather than a consumer. Next year we will raise our own chicken and turkey for consuming. It is a slow process, but I am sure at some point we will be very self-sufficient.

And, here is a jar of our final product after this past Saturday's Honey Harvest... We have about 75 bottles to fill, labels to make, and then off to market.
