Oregon's farm direct bill


  • @Bugbug I think it is unlikely that insect would fall under this exemption. Usually these regulations are limited to the specific items enumerated. Even if more loosely interpreted, insects generally are categorized as meat which is a high-risk food which tend not to be eligible for these small market exemptions (similar scenario with California's cottage industry food regulations).

  • Ok thanks for the feed back @andrew.

  • I had an Oregon food inspector mention this act in regards to insects. While he interpreted insects as qualifying under the exemption, once you did any form of processing of the insects (slaughtering, drying, milling, etc..), the facility would have to be inspected and licensed. This was one person's interpretation, but who knows how the FDA would interpret it.
