you have to follow Defra's guide to farm gate sales, which are basically, you can't grade your eggs, you can't sell them as part of another business (eg, you can't sell them to your local shop to sell on), you have to use new boxes each time (but customers can bring in their boxes for you to refill)

I'll just find their link....

oh nickelcognito that is extremely useful, thank you so much. I am now wondering where to get egg boxes from!

when you date them, it's just on the box, not the egg itself?
