My brothers and I have both seen this in our own endeavors, and I am sure we will see more and more people not understand hard work whether it be things in the yard/garden, animal care or hand made goods. We try our best to feed our animals the best way we can, and yes, it is hard but, I feel that is the closest way we can mimic the way the Lord set up his creation, not with pre-made pellets and salted/sprayed hay but with a variety of grasses, herbs, tree bark and fresh air. Not ammonia filled air in a shed with rabbits stacked several feet high. That is why we charge a higher price for our rabbits, although it is not as much as some. I have still had people ask "Would you consider lowering the price (other babies are being sold for $20!)?" that is when we need to remember the saying, "You get what you pay for."
We have had quite a few people think that our prices should be lower whether it be at trade shows or with acquaintances of some of our family members. But thank the Lord there are still some people in this world who know what hard work is and understand the value in healthy animals. I have had some people drive quite a ways for a couple of my rabbits and are very happy that they are able to get such a well cared for, healthy animal!
With all that said, that is why I feel that my prices are fair for how much time I put into things. If you are wanting a custom order and you have seen my gallery, I urge you to consider that all I put my time and supplies into will be my best. I try to please the Lord in the things I do and that is why I have may have higher prices then some people think is right for my age... But does it really matter the age or does it matter the experience and quality?
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31
