Licensing costs for small scale poultry production
« on: July 05, 2021, 10:39:40 am »
Hello everyone,
As the title implies I am putting together a list of the regulations and licenses I will need for a planned poultry enterprise. I am planning to keep under 1000 birds for meat production and have plans for an on-farm slaughter facility.

Will you folk be kind enough to list all of the licenses I will need? I am trying to think ahead and be good about this.  :farmer:

If you have a look at the .gov.uk website and search poultry you'll get the legislation and regulations you'll need.  It's also worth having a chat with your local Environmental Health team who are responsible for some of the licensing and normally helpful if you work with them to do things right from the beginning.
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible.

Hi Scarlet,
I am hoping to hear from the people that manage poultry on this forum.
I've found it relatively difficult in the past when dealing with large organisations and have found that they often won't speak to you without taking all of your personal information which I am not willing to give at this conceptual stage.

Yes, let's put a simple list for simple people (like me  :innocent:).
Its very difficult to actually find anything useful, black on white list of requirements.

I only keep and slaughter poultry for our home consumption, for which you don't need any regulations really.

I would be interested in more info for the small wcale producers.

Here's some useful info:

Growing loads of fruits and vegetables! Raising dairy goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits on 1/2 acre in the middle of the city of Leicester, using permaculture methods.

I guess the first thing to do is register with environmental health as a food business- they will guide you in the right direction.
