We are allowed to reuse cartons here as long as we put our name on it and the date packed. Thank goodness because if I had to pay for cartons I'd have to raise my price. Have not found any affordable. Once word got out around town and at church that we reuse cartons we've never had a shortage. Sometimes we get hundreds.Energyvet said:Anyone buying egg cartons and if so, whats the best deal?
Be sure to check with your local health department to make sure that you can sell fresh eggs without a permit, or a walk thru from the health department. It can be very costly getting legal and getting everything in order. But not as costly as fines and penalties from ignoring them. Have your customers bring egg cartons, that way, YOU aren't using used cartons. That's a real ugly with the health dept. Sorry to be such a downer, but it's need to know kinda stuff!I am going to start selling eggs. What is the going rate for eggs? Im in KY
Where in Indiana? I'm south of Lafayette.doubleoakfarm said:We sell large brown eggs for $3 and duck eggs for $4. When we have quail it's $3 for ten. If I can get goose eggs I keep them for crafts. I'm in Indiana. And yes there are some who sell for $1.50-$2.00 here, but I always sell out and I actually pay for my feed with my egg money.
