Well done on your sales...we have a woman who comes the the schoolground and seels her eggs...think they have more of a farm than a small holding or 'family' setup (which we are looking into at the moment ;) ) I always buy of her as the eggs are far superior to shop ones! and alot cheaper too!

Best of luck with your 'egg shoppe'! hope you have that elusive last egg for the six now!!

Well done Cammi

get some more hens,  :D I sell my duck eggs via a sign on the gate. Mum also takes eggs down to the local indoor market every week, a butcher in there has them, so if you have an indoor market/butcher near to you may be worth asking.

good luck

Jo

please be careful if selling to one person who will then be selling them onto others as there are a lot more rules and regulations regarding this.
Staffies are softer than you think.

But that's surely the butchers problem ?
I would just say something like "he told me they were for his consumption"
surely we can't be held respnsible for people selling our eggs on.
"It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it."

sorry it's not just the butchers problem but your problem too  :(
Please check with Defra as to whether you need to register as a packing station and whehter you need to date stamp the eggs or even if you have to grade them as you could both end up with a fine. You could however sell them yourself on a stall with your boxes labelled with your details I do believe as you are selling them direct to the end users.

Yes yes I understand that but say you sell me eggs I tell you that your eggs are lovely and I want say 3 dozen. you don't know me from Adam and you have legitamately farm gate sold me your eggs.
Sale over no crime commited. congratulations on staying within the law

Now I'm a naughty boy and secretly want to put your eggs on my car boot sale at a sneaky mark up because you were to cheap and I saw the opertunity.
A man from defra comes along and busts me :ohmy:
the horror!!
still it's a fair cop I've been bad but have you ??
See my point?

the Defra man only has to ask where he obtained his eggs from - and it would be only your word against his (and DNA could prove they came from your birds anyway should Defra decide to take it that far). Ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law so the chances are you would lose.
Also remember this is an open forum and can be read by everybody showing that you had been warned of this problem, and as a responsible forum we cannot condone any illegal actions  :).
Sorry if my answer seems harsh but I do have to point these things out  :)

interesting. I wasn't suggesting anyone breaks the law just interested about when it becomes ilegal and the example above was mearly a sample situation. thanks for stearing me away from a nasty smack on the bum from defra.  ;)
still with only 3 hens and few to sell anyway I doubt I will be getting into much trouble with the law
 still it's a bit harsh that I could be responsible for someone elses actions in my opinion.

If you have less than 350 hens and all the eggs you produce are sold Directly to indivdual consumers at your farm gate or by door to doo sales you will not need to register with an Egg marketing Inspector however under sperate legislation covering Desease Controls if you have 50 r more birds (other than wild birds) of any Species you will need to register with the GBPR.

If you sell some of your eggs to a Local Piblic markets but have less than 50 hens you will not need to register with the an  Egg marketing Inspector, But you will need to display labelling required under Food Labelling regulations (name of food, your name and address and best before date and and Advice to Consumers to keep eggs Chilled) when selling your eggs in this Manner

That is quoted right from DEFRA

so then if I wanted to and had enough land I could keep 49 hens assuming they lay an egg a day and I sell my eggs at 1.50 for 6 I could make about 85 quid a week not taking into account  feed costs etc
what happens as far as income tax is concerned are farm gate sales exempt?
Again I stress I only have 3 hens no land and no plans for an Profitable eggy future I am just curious

Thanks for the 'heads-up' Joyful, much appreciated.

Thanks Al Hathaway and Wolverine too.

Who ever thought selling a few eggs would lead to such a miinefield.

I will be doing a fair bit of reading I think :-)

remember any eggs you sell must be to the end user and not for those people to sell on  :)
