No, but you can start with the department of ag. They might be able to tell you where to go if they don't cover it (which they probably don't..maybe...I don't know).onthehill10 said:Dose anyone know how to get a license to start a micro cannery in ILL.?
Your state Department of Agriculture and your local county health department are the two places to start since they're going to have the greatest regulatory input on what you do and don't do.Jena said:No, but you can start with the department of ag.

Jena,Jena said:I've had people who wanted to buy eggs. I told them I wouldn't sell them because I don't have a license or the time to comply with what's needed for a license. They think that's dumb, but I think it's best to keep things legal.
Thanks Fin,fin29 said:You'll probably have to operate based on these rules:
I don't live on the farm, so I can't sell the eggs from there. I thought of the self-help method, but I have a tenant that I don't want to disturb. I sell most of my meat through delivery, so I'd end up doing the same thing with eggs. In that situation, I do need a license and have to grade the eggs. Too big a pain!Mullers Lane Farm said:Jena,
You need an egg license if you want to sell to stores or restruarants. You do not need an egg license in IL if you are selling direct to the consumer from your farm. You do need to package your eggs in new cartons.
