    Do you have to be ( USDA) certifide to sell farm fresh eggs ? I only have 12 birds, I mostly give eggs to family members (NO CHARGE) would like sell eggs to pay for grain and electricity.
    Any info would be helpful!


    Thank you;

    I think it depends on your area. You might consider charging a feed donation. [​IMG]

    Check your laws. In Georgia you have to read a booklet then pass an exam. I understand it's quite simple and the fee is low. Problem is the state only offers it when they decide they have the funds. So I give the things away, have a few people who I either owe some favors to, or could use the donation.
