What??? Arkansas passed a Cottage Food law? I need to research this. I'm in Arkansas and have been trying to find a kitchen to rent to start my business. This is awesome news!

Atomikjen - The exemption is from the Dept of Agriculture and Markets. NOT your county health department. Call the Albany number at the bottom of the page and ask for Cory Skier.

I'm just getting started and was researching all the legalities of starting my business up. I still haven't gotten licensed or anything. Do you think you could walk me through the process? I'm glad I don't have to rent a kitchen now. I'll send you my website whenever I get it up. This is so exciting and I'm so glad to meet someone else in Arkansas!

Does anyone know when they are going to decide for Florida?

I heard late last year that California was considering this. I can't find anything since then, so I think it may be dead or was simply a bad rumor. I know I signed a petition.

Anyone know more about this?

I found the following on Delaware's Heath and Human Services Brochure:
"OPERATIONS THAT DO NOT REQUIRE A FOOD ESTABLISHMENT PERMIT
1. An establishment that offers only pre-packaged foods that are not potentially hazardous;
2. A produce stand that only offers whole, uncut fresh fruits and vegetables;
3. A food processing plant;
4. A kitchen in a private home if only food that is not potentially hazardous is prepared for sale or service at a function such as a religious or charitable organization's bake sale if allowed by law and if the consumer is informed by a clearly visible placard at the sales or service location that the food is prepared in a kitchen that is not subject to regulation and inspection by the Division of Public Health;
5. An area where food that is prepared as specified immediately above is sold or offered for human consumption;
6. A kitchen in a private home such as a small family day-care provider; or a bed-and-breakfast operation that prepares and offers food to guests if the home is owner occupied, the number of available guest bedrooms does not exceed 6, breakfast is the only meal offered, the number of guests served does not exceed 18, and the consumer is informed by statements contained in published advertisements, mailed brochures, and placards posted at the registration area that the food is prepared in a kitchen that is not regulated and inspected by the Division of Public Health; or
7. A private home that receives catered or home-delivered food; or a private home in which an individual is hired to prepare foods for personal consumption."

So that Means Home Kitchens are Allowed, right?

You can only sell food made in your home kitchen in DE at a religious or charity bake sale; to guests in your home (as in a B&B); or to kids you are taking care of in your home (as in day care). The last clause allows personal chefs to operate without a permit.

AFAIK nothing more has happened other than the petition (which was online, so it doesn't really carry much weight). I doubt this will happen in CA any time soon unless cottage food businesses are pitched as a profit center for the state.

Thanks!! And I agree. When I heard about it my first thought was CA govt is much too greedy to pass this law. Although I think they would have more honest people out there and receive more revenue in the end. Most people want to do this legally. This state just makes it hard and even impossible for honest people to remain so. I am legal - but it was much harder than it should be to get that way.

LOL - it took me a few secs - maybe even a full minute to figure out what AFAIK stood for. icon_redface.gif

Here we go Colorado! I have started a petition to get the Cottage food law here! I you live in Colorado and would like to see this happen please sign it: http://www.petitiononline.com/cocttglw/petition.html

Also Please follow the forum on it here: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-715324-.html

One more thing, join the facebook page for this movement to keep updated on the progress : http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Colorado-Cottage-Law-Movement/107542739330187

This is going to be a long road but it is time Colorado gets on board!
I would like to qoute someone from the other forum, Linsram said it perfectly "So excited about this! I just moved here not too long ago and it's crazy you can't bake from home. You can sell tacos from a truck, meat from the back of your car, and even sell marijuana. But I can't bake a cake?"
Let's get this cake party started! thumbs_up.gif
