Q. What sort of licenses do you need to sell your produce?
A. Licensing requirements depend on what and where you sell the produce. We have the necessary licenses to operate a business, as any small business entity would need. We do not process any of our food products so do not need special licenses or inspections. Also, we are not”certified organic,” so we do not need a soil inspection to be officially endorsed as “organic.” Our clients trust our word that we grow our produce “organically.” We cannot sell to certain companies because of their insurance requirements.
To sell in Farmers’ Markets, one does need to verify that the produce sold is actually grown by the farmer and not by a third party.
