I sell farm eggs and not just any ole egg they are free range eggs. What is the difference in farm fresh eggs and free range eggs? Well it is in the wording..my chickens roam around my farm every day, those are free range eggs. If I kept them in the coop those would be farm fresh eggs.
How many times have you seen the different shows (DIY, HGTV, etc.) take ordinary surroundings and make them into something with a little more pizazz? I believe the message is meant to let us all know that it is the presentation of your surroundings is important to people. It can be anything from moving furniture around, painting a room to help brighten and update, enhancing a picture with scrapbooking supplies; you name it there are thousands of ways to enhance a presentation of a product or environment.
When I worked in the corporate world, a well put together report was just as important as the information that was supplied. I have always said it is in the presentation of the product that matters. So in keeping with my thinking I am doing the same for my customers who buy my free range eggs.
I now have 25 laying hens and am soon to have a couple of more next month. Since it is only my husband and myself at home you can imagine the over-abundance of eggs. A couple of months ago I started supplying a local group of women with farm fresh eggs. Believe it or not, a lot of these women had never had eggs fresh from the farm. I had to educate them on farm-fresh eggs versus store bought eggs.
I educate the ladies in two different ways, verbally and visually. I recently came across some information from Mother Earth News where they had tested free-range eggs compared to store bought eggs. What do you think they found?
According to Mother Earth News test results…free-range eggs have a higher vitamin content and…
- 1/3 less cholesterol
- 1/4 less saturated fat
- 2/3 more vitamin A
- 2 times more Omega-3 fatty acids
- 3 times more Vitamin E
- 7 times more beta carotene
Can you believe these results?!? Who wouldn’t want to eat free-range eggs over store-bought anyday!
When I package my eggs for my customers I use recycled cartons from people who bought store-bought eggs and add the information above with the recipe for easy peel hard boiled eggs. My customers love it! They are thrilled to learn about the benefits of free-range eggs and an added bonus of a tested way to cook hard-boiled eggs.
