According to the Colorado Egg Act (C.R.S. 35-21-104) "Every person selling poultry eggs within this state shall obtain a dealer's license for each place where such business is conducted."

 

Please note that any person who produces and sells only at retail (directly to the consumer) less than 250 dozen eggs per month is exempted from licensing with the State of Colorado.

 

NEW: If you wish to sell your eggs from a location other than the farm, the Class I License for Egg Producer/Dealers is now available. If your operation is not USDA inspected, you will need to be inspected by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
