With the price of eggs soaring across the United States, one kid entrepreneur is offering relief to consumers by selling eggs from his family’s farm.
Rylen Robbins, who is an 11-year-old 5th grader, joined Ainsley Earhardt on FOX and Friends Monday morning with the owner of Sweet Anna’s Bakery in North Carolina, Courtney Johnson, to discuss how they are helping one another.
Robbins explained that when his family saw the prices of eggs rising higher and higher, and after realizing they have an overabundance of eggs, they decided to sell them for a better price compared to those in the store. According to Johnson, she was paying about $6-7 per dozen from the grocery store, and was able to buy them from Robbins for $3 per dozen. Robbins has 21 chickens in his family’s coop, and they produce 18-19 eggs per day.
Johnson shared that the rising prices, not just of eggs, but of sugar and other products, was discouraging for her business. She explained that because of inflation her prices have had to go up, but she is working hard to find ways to keep prices down for her customers, and Robbins is helping her do that.
