    I'm going to start raising pastured poultry on our land in chicken tractor and would like sell excess legally to friends and family and eventually market them to local resteraunts and individuals. I know there's a market for it around locally. I want to make sure all my paperwork is in order. What licenses certifications and equipment,if any, will be required?

    Is anybody doing anything like this that would like to share their experience?

    Thanks in advanced.

    I don't think my post was clear... My apologies. I will be selling meat not eggs... That could be a possibility in the future but I have no interest in it at this time.

    Thank you for taking your time to respond though... Still good information.
