    This can vary depending upon your city's ordinances.

    We don't sell eggs very often, but when we do, it's to friends. If I wanted to sell eggs, I'd sell eggs. They are not a "controlled substance". They are naturally occurring farm products. And I don't much care for asking permission to do something as simple as selling eggs. We sold some goat milk a few times this year. Actually we gave it, and he gave a contribution. I fear if some nosy "official" showed up trying to make it his business, selling eggs or milk would be the least of my charges.

    If you are selling to the consumer on your property you are exempt. Permit is needed for farmer's market or to sell to schools, hospitals, restaurants, and/or other businesses. This is in Indiana. You will need to grade and size the eggs and black out carton labels.
