US: What is legal when selling directly from the farm?

The Drake University Agricultural Law Centre has developed an online version of The Legal Guide for Direct Farm Marketing. This website provides farmers the information they need to deliver produce, dairy, meat, and value-added foods directly to consumers. The website updates the original print publication that has helped thousands of farmers navigate the challenges of selling locally grown foods to consumers through farmers markets, CSAs, and farm stands as well as to institutional buyers such as restaurants and food retailers. The guide has new content as well as an extensive checklist, video interviews with farmers and other direct marketing experts, an interactive "Ask Drake" form, and a state-by-state listing of organizations and agencies that can provide additional services. The benefits of offering the legal guide online include increased accessibility, regular updates on direct farm marketing law and policy, and options that allow users to ask questions directly to staff and law students at the Drake University Agricultural Law Centre.
