, OR you are selling your baked goods at a charity's or religious organization's bake sale and have a prominently placed placard stating basically that the items were baked in a non-governmental agency inspected kitchen (not verbatim - these are my words). Of course if it's the latter, the profits go to the charity and not your pocket.
As of this writing, Mar. 23, 2012, NJ has two active bills in the legislature: the Senate version, S 93, and the Assembly version, A 1761. Please join us on our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute information: www.facebook.com/NJHomeBakersBill
or follow us on Twitter @ NJHomeBakerBill. We also have a Zazzle store where you can purchase items that show your support for these bills and let others know of their existence = www.zazzle.com/NJHomeBakersBill
. But we in no way have parts of the state where a Cottage Food Law is in effect. (After working on trying to have one passed since 2009, that piece of misinformation sets my teeth on edge).
