    I have been investigating the regulations for selling my extra eggs....do I really have to do all these things just to sell the eggs to pay for their food and housing..I would have to get a permit limited sales $130.00 mobile vender license $130.00,food cert. manager course $160.00 , and have to have a special place to wash / package eggs not my home that has a 3 compartment sink hot & cold running water ,concrete floor ect. just to sell maybe 5 doz. eggs a week! I just can't believe it please someone tell me it's not so!!!

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined our community.

    I've never sold eggs before, so don't know the regulations. [​IMG] Those regulations sound very extensive, though!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Every town is different. In my town there are no regulations as long as I am not selling to any business that will resell my eggs. I can sell eggs to my neighbors and such and I don't have to do a thing.

    Good luck with your egg business and welcome to our flock!

    Like TwoCrows said, all towns are different so you'll need to look into that.

    Good luck![​IMG]

    Maybe if you just plan on having a small venture and not supplying large businesses- rules are not so stringent. You do have to realize with say a salmonella outbreak from eggs, someone has to be responsible. A grocer would need to feel confident that selling your eggs, is safe for his customers.
