I have a brilliant idea!! It may be my best one yet... I am going to sell organic, free-range chicken eggs at local Farmer's Markets.
I know, I'm highly opposed to labeling food organic. Be serious, folks - all food is organic (by definition, organic means characteristic of, pertaining to, or derived from living organisms). However, if people want to be ridiculous and buy overpriced food just because it is labeled "organic" shouldn't I be able to capitalize on it as well?
This is where my brilliant idea comes in to play.
A couple of days ago I went down to my grandparents' house to visit and get some eggs. My grandfather has been raising chickens for a couple of years now so most of the family just goes down there to get eggs a dozen or so at a time. Well, apparently, the chickens are liking the cool weather and they are in hyper-laying mode. (I bet there were 18 dozen eggs in the "eggerator" when I went down there.) I literally left their house with 7 dozen eggs - I can't eat 7 dozen eggs - I'm only one man (well, woman).
The next day I just happened to be reading the newspaper and saw an ad for a local farmers market - BINGO! - this my chance! I can take my grandpa's eggs (which by any definition are organic because he doesn't give them hormones - I don't think he gives them anything because most of them are missing quite a few feathers) and sell them to the suckers at the local farmers market. I figured I could get $2/dozen easy. All of the sudden it occurred to me that they are also "free-range" chickens. They have a chicken coop, but there is plenty of room for them to move around and once a day my grandpa lets them out to roam around the yard. We just upped the price another dollar!
I'm going to be rich!
