[Market-farming] Eggs in Ohio

My understanding is that, in Ohio, eggs can be pre-ordered and then picked 
up at the market without a license, but you can't bring in unsold eggs and 
sell them outright. This is true of farm-processed chickens as well. 
Furthermore there are temperature restrictions involved. Something like a 
maximum of 44 degrees in the cooler and you need to have a thermometer in 
there to confirm your temps. Eggs can be freely sold at your farm without 
restriction up to a maximum per year which is fairly liberal. I've seen 
this info on the Ohio   ag sites somewhere, and it's what the Fairfield 
County health inspector is enforcing at the Lancaster market we're part of. 
Hope this helps...
