permits to sell worms

Do you need a permit to sell worms out of your yard?

I am starting to think about doing this, as a way to make a little extra money, and also for a friend of mine who loves to fish but has trouble finding worms locally.

Permit to Sell Anything
by: Pauly

Hello Karen,

The best advice I can give you is to check with your local city hall and they will steer you in the right direction.

I haven't heard of needing a permit or license for selling worms but I don't ask other sellers either. As with anything, these days, you need a license or permit just to pick your nose.

I'm not trying to discourage you. We need more worm farming people like us but I want you to abide by whatever regulations are in your area as well.

You may not need special permission to sell worms but you may need some type of license or permit just to "sell".

Every city, county, and state is different so do your due diligence.

It could just be a simple phone call and you're in business.

Thanks for the great question.

Selling worms from home.
by: Dale Robinson

If your state has sales tax on worms you will need to get a sales tax permit. There also may be restrictions on your neaborhood about selling from your property or putting up a sign to let people know you have them. Check your covenence for your neaborhood if it exists.
