Do you have to be inspected or certifiedor could you just sell t whoever contacts you to buy them?
I think it may depend on where you live. In NC, a person can sell up to 30 dozen eggs per week without any special requirements. I would suggest checking with your state's Agriculture department.
I'm in California and I'm only selling to people I know or who contact me via word of mouth. Not at stores, or any roadside stands or farmers' markets or anything. No certification needed for that.
Thanks for the input I am in Pennslvania so I guess I will check locally.
In Georgia you need to take a free class and pass a test so you can candle and grade the eggs, which is required of any eggs for sale.
I checked your profile and you're in Pennsylvania? Here is a document I found in a quick search: http://agalternatives.aers.psu.edu/Publications/small_scale_egg.pdf
It just talks about labeling and storage, but I would contact your dept of agriculture to make sure.
Definitely check into it. I have been "told" that in Missouri as long as I do nothing to them, i.e. boil them (why you would do that I don't know) and that they go straight from hen to customer then you need do nothing else. I want to check into it further to see, so that if there is something I CAN DO even if not needed then it's done and I don't have to worry about it.
Thanks for the info.
