Celebrating Easter this weekend with my family, we went through a lot of eggs! Between dying eggs and hiding eggs, I got to thinking about where eggs come from and how we consume them. There is a company I highlight on bemindful that focuses on eggs. Essentially, Eggzy is a marketplace where backyard chicken keepers can track their flock’s egg production, and people who are looking for local eggs can find them.
Flock owners enter information about their chickens and expenses into the system and then, each time they collect eggs, they enter the number of eggs into the system. Eggzy automatically calculates production rates and breakeven rates, simplifying pricing decisions.
Flock owners also create their own online “Egg Stand,” where they can tell their story in words, stats, and pictures and let friends and family know when and how many eggs are available.
Consumers can go to the Egg Stand listings and sort by zip code to find Egg Stands nearby. They can also subscribe to their favorite Egg Stands to be notified whenever eggs are available.
Eggzy’s tagline is "Eggzy is a movement to make our food system personal again," and it is a mindful way to do your egg shopping. Check it out Eggzy to find a flock near you.
