I am considering to raise and sell pasture poultry. I am in need of information on how to sell the processed bird to local consumers. I want to make sure I stay within law when doing so. What information do I need to place on the package bird and if I have them processed on the farm can I sell it or if I have them processed else where can I then sell them?

Those are good questions to be asking now. You will need to contact the Ohio Department of Agriculture and inquire what the requirements are for processing and selling meat birds within Ohio. I would start with this link and under the first question is a phone number that may help you. http://www.agri.ohio.gov/apps/faqs/faqs.aspx?div=Meat+Inspection#tog
