Just thought I would let you all know that in New Mexico there is the "New Mexico Egg Grading Act", it has the laws on selling eggs in our state. I found out when I inquired at the local co-op about selling my eggs to them. They needed me to register with the state first as an egg producer, free for very small producers like me. Some quirks in the law are: You can not label the eggs as "fresh eggs", "hennery eggs", or "new-laid eggs" unless they are graded A or better. You must label the carton with the name of the packer or distributor. If you have less than 3,000 birds you can sell eggs without grading them, but you have to label them ungraded. All eggs for sale in the state must be in cartons. So I had to tell the state in writing of my intent to sell ungraded eggs, my location of production, number of hens, and general area of the state where I intend to sell eggs. I called an spoke with a man, he said free-range labeling would be OK. Re-using egg cartons is OK, but you must mark out the grading and paste your own label. The lady at the co-op said it was part of homeland security, they just have to know who has these weapons of mass gluttony Anyway, I would love to hear about any other state laws on egg sales, and to help inform our community here at BYC.
