Eggs Marketing and Licensing

farm to school
The Kentucky Egg Marketing Program provides for the random inspection of eggs at all levels to ensure consumer safety.

Under the Kentucky Egg Marketing Law, all retail businesses, distributorships, or plants must be licensed to sell shell eggs, egg products, or specialty egg products within the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Others included are small producers that sell more than 60 dozen per week, or who distribute their eggs for resale.

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture strictly enforces quality, labeling, and refrigeration. Before deciding to sell eggs, you should review the statutes and regulations concerning the sale of eggs
