The demand for eggs has gone way way up over the past few weeks. Our duck egg backlog more or less disappeared last week, and our chicken egg supply is almost at that point. It seems people are stocking up on the more staple products these days. These certainly aren’t the best of times, but we’re grateful for all of the local support recently.
We’ve decided to put purchase limits in place for our chicken eggs and duck eggs to hopefully better spread out availability. For the time being, we’re going to limit chicken egg purchases to no more than 1 dozen and duck egg purchases to no more than a 1/2 dozen. We’re hoping that this will reduce the number of times we have to tell people we don’t have any eggs for them in the near term. Once our supply has recovered a bit and/or demand has calmed down, we’ll likely remove the purchase limits… we’ll post another update at that time. Our egg prices have been unchanged since we started selling at the farmer’s market in June last year, and no plans to change them anytime soon: $3 per half dozen for chicken eggs and $4 per half dozen for duck eggs.
We want to give a big thank you to all of our customers, and hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!
