some of our friends have expressed an interest in purchasing quality homegrown free range chickens. There are several advantages for me in selling poultry and eggs, one being an agricultural exemption for state taxes. I would need to show gross sales of only $1,000 a year to qualify, and any savings on taxes is good. What are some of the ways to build up a business of selling locally in a community? What are some of the considerations we would face in marketing meaties, such as cost of feed, methods of keeping birds - I am sold on pasturing but not tractors. Tell me about selling your meat chickens please.
