When considering the selling and buying of animals and animal parts, be aware that each state has their own laws concerning this. You need to know, not only the law of the state you are in, but also that of the person you are selling to or buying from.

There are also rules on individual buy/sell/auction websites of what may or may not be allowed.

Here is a small bit from the "Code of Virginia":

Code of Virginia  § 29.1-521.
To hunt, trap, take, capture, kill, attempt to take, capture, or kill, possess, deliver for transportation, transport, cause to be transported, by any means whatever, receive for transportation or export, or import, at any time or in any manner, any wild bird or wild animal or the carcass or any part thereof, except as specifically permitted by law and only by the manner or means and within the numbers stated.


It does go on to mention that parts from legally killed turkey and deer may be made into things and sold, such as turkey callers, tools and utensils,etc.

Plant materials has a whole other set of rules. Most of the laws and rules are in place to stop the spread of plant diseases, bugs and to control "invasive" species.

Bottom line...do your research. (And, since I mentioned rules, remember the important rule is to always be nice.)

Hello "rowing gardener". I really enjoyed looking at your pictures. Thank you for sharing those. I hope you will post more pictures during your growing season and keep us updated on your progress. What types of vegetables do you grow?

Thank you all for the welcome. I'll try my best to keep this site great.

Extremely excited entering elite, exclusive enterprise. Entitlement expressing endorsement ensures earlier earnest efforts eyed as extraordinary. Encompassing enumerated elected entourage edifying eminent ethics. Expressing enjoyment embracing ensuing epic engagement. Exceedingly ecstatic!

Thanks guys. If it works for Paul, it's fine with me. Building forum it is.
Aquaponics is listed in the Building forum at present. I assume there would be a considerable amount of building required to set up an aquaponics system, but I don't feel that it fits in the building forum.

The origin of the word comes from:

aquaculture (raising fish) + hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) = AQUAPONICS

Hunting and Fishing is one combined sub-forum under Wilderness and suggestive more of the sport of fishing (angling), as opposed to farming and raising fish.

The Growies forum would, in my opinion, be a better fit.
Hello to you and welcome to Permies. Thanks for the picture, I love your barn!

This tardy tautogram's to tell this team that they're totally terrific! Thanks!!!
You might be a Permie when...

You start to look forward to the large, very over-priced box of pears a certain someone sends you every Christmas. Not because you enjoy the pears (the ones on my own trees are so much better), but because they come in a really sturdy box that could have many uses. And, also, if you cut the piece of foam stuff that covers the pears into 3 equal pieces, they fit perfectly across the windows in my house and insulate against drafts quite well.
