We're in business

Big news here at Rowangarth Farm. We are now officially egg sellers.

Three separate families have placed a standing order for eggs, totalling four dozen each week. At $2.50 a dozen it won't make us rich but at least the girls are paying for their room and board now. (Besides, I plan on selling them for $3.00 a dozen at market.)

I'm pretty jazzed about this. Maybe it's because other families -- not just us -- are placing a value on local farm-fresh food, which is at the heart of what we're trying to do out here.

Or maybe it's because this shows we can make some money doing what we love to do.

Then again, maybe it's because I'm just proud our girls produce such damn fine eggs. My son thinks so too.

Congratulations! You SHOULD be proud. Once again, 'tis a shame we don't live closer 'cause we'd be giving you some business. Our cluckers are in a slump like we've never seen. We're barely (and I mean barely) squeezing out enough eggs to keep us going.

Lay on Rowangarth Farm chickens!

Thanks, Mama Pea -- you're like my own personal cheering squad! I hope our girls don't fall into a slump now that we've got paying customers :)
