Small farm Milk & Dairy sales
Good evening We have a small hobby farm. One family milk cow just calved and producing farm more than we can consume. Thought we might try our hand at selling milk and possibly cheeses or yogurts. I have read much of the available literature and am left more confused than prior to research regarding the laws and/or licensing requirements. We are currently pasteurizeing. Do we need any licenses? Permits? For milk also anything else for dairy products. Must we sell from the farm? Can I deliver? farmers market maybe? a short synopsis of the regs would be greatly appreciated.
- A person owning no more than three dairy cows (no more than two producing) that have calved at least once or
- A person owning no more than nine sheep that have lactated at least once or
- A person owning no more than nine goats that have lactated at least once
