We have a meeting set up next week to talk with a county rep and a USDA rep. We are going into business to raise and sell pastured meat chickens and want to sell at some farmers markets. In order to sell at the markets, the market organizers want us to have approval from the county who wants approval from the USDA. I have no idea how things are going to go. My biggest worry is that they will say we need an indoor place to process that meets all the federal requirements. That would be cost prohibitive for us. We would still be able to sell direct from the farm, just not at farmers markets. Here's hoping the meeting goes well!
