eggs on

Finally, at some ripe old age approaching 28 weeks, our hens are laying

Not all at once, which gives us time to figure out the market, and iron out the logistics of egg collection (plastic trays which hold thirty eggs, stacked in a crate) and washing and weighing. 

And right on cue our orders are going up and up. 

Lucky. That's a lot of quiche.

Really, if you had this view, I'm sure you'd lay delicious eggs too.

Hope your chickens are laying and if they're not we will have our little farm stall up soon!

Happy Tuesday, lovely folk.

That certainly IS a LOT of eggs. Next time, I’m coming back as a Buena Vista hen, if I can look at that view all day! Good luck with the orders.

Either you’ve moved the chooks or they have them some freaky long necks.

Bring it on. Was just reading about how eggs are a “good mood food”. Vitamin D apparently. And, in a separate article, they’re also good for our skin, due to the high concentrations of antioxidants. And DELICIOUS, however you eat ’em. Yum yum yum.

I’m a bit jealous, our girls are rising 28 weeks and counting, and still not an egg in sight… *sigh* Your eggs (and your view) look amazing, but a bit too far to come from SA for googy’s or I would be there like a flash 🙂

I was given a dozen eggs from my Dh’s administration lady the other day. I almost don’t want to use them….because then they’ll be gone. But I can’t wait to eat them either. I’m planning to make a frittata on Friday night for dinner. Those special eggs will be the main attraction.

Oh my goodness I keep forgetting you might see this!!! Those labels are a draft, beloved designer, and printed on mail labels on my black and white computer. For ref, REAL (full colour) labels going to print next week. When I have a minute!!! (The logo looks great on everything, because its great. Youre a genius. Hope youre coming home for a visit sometime via Gerringong.) xxx

I love your labels. Went onto Google maps hoping hoping hoping that where you are isn’t too far from us. It’s not around the corner, but at least it’s not the other side of the country! Funny, because we were going to move to Kiama when we were planning the big move in the UK.

Ha I thought the photos were in B+W, hence the no colour labels! Sure they will look super in the end. Got it on my wishlist to visit, one day. xx

I’m hanging out to visit your shop when it opens. I spent much of my childhood earning my pocket money filling buckets from the next boxes of my parents free range hen operation and standing on a cold concrete floor loading an ancient egg grading machine!

PS – I got my original Cassandra Allen illustration in the post a few weeks ago and its even more beautiful in real life of course…so I’m your labels will send the eggs walking off the shelf in a jiffy 🙂
