    So if you want to sell eggs only to family and friends... do you need a license or what?

    Where I live I can sell eggs from our own property but If I sell them off the property them I have to go by the FDA regulations and the eggs have to be sanitized. I used to sell eggs to some local markets.

    If it's just to family and friends I wouldn't ask such questions.

    I plan on selling to family and friends, or gifting whatever...no rules as far as I have ever heard, it may be different if you plan on selling at a Farmer's Market or something...that you may want to check into...otherwise, let them enjoy fresh eggs!

    I am involved in a yearly fundraiser and we do someting similar involving beverages. You buy the cup for $5 and its bottomless unless you lose your cup then you got to buy another cup. All drinks are free.Its up to you what beverage you prefer like BEER,water,tonic or soda or pop(pending what part ot the country your in) or perhaps BEER. Did I mention that BEER is available? Since the club does not have a alcoholic beverage license, protocol insists we give it away.

    I am surprised that my state doesn't make you get a permit to sell farm goods,of course for a nominal fee.
