    This law states that only ‘farmers’ may sell foods produced on their farms. I wonder, how is ‘farmer’ legally defined in this rule, and can ‘gardeners’ who live in urban-zoned residential areas also benefit from this regulation?

    From the law:

    “Farm direct marketer” means an agricultural producer that sells farm direct products or producer processed products directly to the retail consumer.

    I take that to mean that anyone can sell these types of goods, including a home gardener. That’s my interpretation — I’m not sure what’s the ag dept’s interpretation is.
