    A story in pictures, how lucky to have been there 🙂

    Those pictures are so beautiful! Did I spy a rainbow in the last one? Also, I can’t remember the last time I paid just $1.00 for a dozen eggs!

      Kroger, Save-a-Lot, Walgreen and lots of places have eggs for a dollar a doz. just gotta watch the sales 🙂

        BUT the “freshness” factor may be suspect! Nothing like farm-fresh!!!-)

      2. Wendy

        No $1/dozen eggs in these parts – sale or no sale!

        I shop at Kroger. Right now they’re on sale for $1.25/dozen. Not every Kroger store carries the same prices. I don’t go to Save-a-Lot because the store here is so dirty that I’m wary of buying any food there.

    Wish I knew where the $1.00 a dozen eggs are. I live close enough that I’d definitely go check it out.

    I have read this column for so many years I can’t count them. If you are watching ads to buy eggs you are missing the point. Reading this is like reliving earlier happier days

    It’s an old picture-we buy our eggs for $4 a dozen at a non Amish farm-we like to see the brown,green,blue,& white,even pink shells-plus the chickens are treated well ,roaming around pecking.

      Actually, I just took the $1 for a dozen eggs pic last week!:)

    I agree, if you’re looking to find cheaper eggs, your missing the point of the photo. Scenes like these are priceless, unexpected pleasures in our busy lifestyle we live. Thank you for allowing a walk down memory lane for a bit.

      I made an offhand comment about the eggs that just grew into something I hadn’t intended. I commented on the beauty of the pictures first, and was NOT seeing this as an ad for how to buy eggs. Thanks for the slap.

    I love Berne and go up there as much as I can the cheese shop is wonderful and the quilt shop is a treat to shop in
