Last Sunday was Lovely Hubby's first solo stall at the Farmers Market, selling some of his worm products. It created lots of interest with folks asking lots of questions about the process and the products.
He sold half of all the bottles of Worm Tea (it's a brilliant fertiliser for your plants) that he took, and more importantly managed to get four orders for trailer loads of compost.
Strangely not too many people wanted to handle the samples of worms that he had nestling in his buckets under the table, although he dug in deep to get them handfuls out!!
I was really proud he set his stall out very nicely.....maybe some of my retail teaching has rubbed off on him.
It was a very successful day for both of us with me selling almost all our eggs and supplying Valentines gifts to all the last minute shoppers. Jason called in on his way back up the road for a bacon butty to fortify him for the journey, and LH managed to only spend a little bit of his takings on a chunk of Stilton (his weakness in life).
Most people were really impressed with the packaging, to keep costs right down we had decided to use two litre milk carton and two litre water bottles, and for the bags of compost we re-used our pig feed sacks. This way folk are paying for the product and not the packaging, kinder to the customer and the environment.
