The intent of the fewer than 20,000 bird exemption is to provide a means for a small grower to process whole and cut up birds on the farm for local distribution. This exemption allows the grower to process birds in a commercially licensed facility without being under inspection each time birds are slaughtered and/or processed. It is the goal of Quality Assurance and Regulations to help the producer understand and implement good food safety and sanitation practices.
