Shelby Grebenc has been raising chickens for both eggs and meat at her
family's Adams County farm. In this 2011 photo, she holds Chipmunk, one of
her Americana hens. (Cyrus McCrimmon, The Denver Post)

Over the past year I have been trying to earn money. I have been doing this
by helping plant a big garden and then selling lettuce and other vegetables
that I raise at farmers markets. 


I also have chickens and I sell eggs at a local dairy, farmers market, and
from roadside signs telling people how to get to my house. I also sell live
chickens and broilers. 

The next time you shop at a farmers market, think about what it cost me to
grow it. Don't ask me to take less and then tell me you can get it cheaper
at a big-box store. I know you can - but it will not be as fresh or as good
as what I have, and you won't make me cry.
