Windward Farm, Washougal, WA- our work in progress, our money pit, our home!
I sell my flock's produce to the staff at the school I work at. Have no trouble getting rid of 4 dozen a week at $3/doz. Mine are cage-free, organic, brown. Start at your work. Ask to sell thru your feed store.

I sure do! There's a guy in my office who has a small farm. He raises primarily chickens and pigs. Since he lives a three-hour drive away, he works from home most of the week except Monday & Friday. So, if I want eggs I send him an email and bring the cash when he's next in the office. Instant eggs, delivered right to my desk!
And they are the most fantastic eggs I've ever eaten. I haven't bought grocery store eggs in two years since I discovered he had these!
I have done in the past, and while I enjoyed supporting local small farmers, and even paid a small premium to do so, I absolutely could not taste any difference in the eggs. None whatsoever. They tasted like eggs, same as the grocery store ones.

The problem with eatwild.com is that you have to pay a $35 fee, your chickens have to be pasture-kept except during inclement weather, and I think you are not allowed to even worm them. That is completely unrealistic for me. We have too many predators for me to let mine free-range almost 24/7, plus I would never find their eggs.
I figured maybe someone else had the same issues on how to get rid of all the eggs! We cannot take them to work, as I don't work and hubby works at a prison and cannot take in a whole dozen eggs. For now we are just giving them away, but it would be nice to get a little money to help with feed costs.
I have tossed around the idea of starting a website to advertise that doesn't have all the strings of the others out there, just not sure how realistic that would be. It would need to at least break even financially.
