I have a question maybe some one knows the answer too. We raise a small
amount of pork and lamb. A local restaurant approached me about buying
lamb. When I contacted the MDA to get a license to sell my meat I was
told I can only sell direct to the consumer. I can't sell to a
restaurant, school, or store where it will be resold. How does the farm
to school program work then? Thanks in advance. Donna>
