If you’re interested in learning more about the egg farming industry in Maine you should start by learning the rules and regulations you’ll need to adhere to.

The best place to start at the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation & Forestry.

This page links out to various quality assurance & regulations for eggs and other foods. Such as how to grade eggs, label the boxes, the licensing you’ll need, and so on.

You should also read The State of Maine Food Code, which is a manual that lists all the regulations related to food safety.

If you’re new to starting a business, I also recommend taking a look at this ‘Starting a business’ page on the Maine Government website.

Whether you’re selling some of your extra eggs from your backyard chickens or thinking about starting an egg farm, it’s important you get off on the right foot.

Not All Eggs Are Equal!

If you enjoy eggs – and I’m sure you do – you’ll be well aware there can be a huge difference in the taste and quality of an egg.

Not all eggs are equal – far from it.

It’s not to do with the breed of the hen that laid the egg, either, it’s to do with how the hens are being treated at the farm.

You should always look for eggs that are labeled as ‘free range’ or ‘cage free’ as a starting point.

Caged or battery hens are generally kept in dire conditions. It’s a dated practice – that does still happen – but it’s cruel and inhumane to keep hens caged up all day.

Not only is it inhumane, but caged hens also produce eggs that are lacking in taste and nutritional content.

Trust me, when you’ve put a caged egg to the test against an egg produced by a free-range hen, you’ll never go back.

In addition to this, hens should have excellent living conditions, a good quality feed, and a high standard of care.

Happy chickens are healthy chickens, and healthy chickens lay the best eggs. It’s really as simple as that.

Can I Sell Eggs in Maine?

You can sell eggs in Maine, yes.

In fact, it’s a great side hustle for backyard chicken owners and a great business model for anyone looking to scale up an egg farming business.

You’ll need to check the licensing requirements and the rules and regulations, as this can vary depending on what type of business you’re operating.

To give you an idea of what you’ll need to do, the University of Maine states:

“No license or inspection is required by the Maine Department of Agriculture, Quality Assurance and Regulations for producers of eggs with less than 3,000 laying hens.”

There are also some strict rules around how you can label your eggs. This is to protect both the consumer and you as the seller.

You have to understand what the size and grade of your eggs are, and clearly make this on the carton along with the name, address, and zip code of the packer.

Don’t let any of the rules and regulations put you off. It’s not difficult, and the rules are only there to protect the health and rights of the consumers.

Selling eggs to your local community is a fun and rewarding experience, and it’s a great way to earn some extra money.
