This weeks tip involves…getting free farm fresh eggs! If you or anyone you know has ever raised laying hen chickens, then you know how challenging it can be to keep your egg carton count on pace with your never ending egg supply.
If you employ this tip you will be a help to your local chicken farmers, promote recycling among your friends, family, & coworkers, and be very likely to get free eggs out of the deal!
In order to get free eggs from your local chicken farmers, start by doing any or all of the following:
- save your egg cartons
- throw an egg carton drive at work to have all your coworkers save & bring in theirs
- when taking a walk around your neighborhood, stop by your neighbors houses and collect their cartons
- when visiting friends & family, ask for their empties
Once you assemble a good amount of cartons call a few local chicken farmers and/or visit a local farmer’s market to propose a “carton for egg” swap! Work with them to barter a trade of your collected cartons for some of their farm fresh eggs. The farmer will undoubtedly be willing to work with you, and may even be interested in some type of revolving exchange for each dozen.
Don’t forget to remind everyone to bring you their cartons so you can enjoy free eggs as long as you choose!
