I actually have been in contact with her as well ... she has kind of become a "mentor" to me. They do have something written up but they wont be voting on it until beginning of next year. I'm trying to help her get as many signatures as I can on the petition so if you haven't signed it or know people that would, please help to pass it along icon_lol.gif

Georgia is now in the process of trying to pass a Cottage Food Law. Here are the specifics: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fagr.georgia.gov%2FData%2FSites%2F1%2Fmedia%2Fag_news%2Flegal_notices%2Ffiles%2F2012%2F40-7-19cottagefoodregulations7-2-12.pdf&h=7AQGHLmqO
You can also go to the Georgia Cottage Food Law Facebook page.

I'm a bit confused about the laws in New York, I went to the link you posted but still don't understand. I bake for friends and family, but I am scared to bake for anyone else. My family is putting a lot of pressure on me to do it for profit because they've heard of several people that make a good living off of baking from their homes. I live in Westchester County and have been trying to get answers for months. All I keep getting is the run around. Any advice?

Greetings kariz, You are right, the NY Ag&Mkts page is difficult to understand. Mostly - the only allowed foods are ones that DO NOT NEED refrigeration. And you can sell wholesale with no restrictions; but retail sales are only allowed at agricultural venues.

I have two suggestions: Make a list of your questions and call the Albany phone number. Or, I teach Start & Run a Home-Based Food Business in several counties. See my classes page http://bakingfix.com/thefix/?page_id=2182

Hi,
I have been working on developing my recipes for over a year. My business model starts with Cottage Food License to fund a production space in the future. I accept the $15000/year gross earning limitation but object to the state requiring my recipes. Those recipes are then part of the public record and could be requested by anyone!!!
Anyone else come upon this requirement? It appears to be new as of the end of June. One other thing, if you add new recipes you have to submit them along with $75 so no giving one or two; if you don't submit it you may not sell it. I don't mind listing ingredients or processes but I do not want "trade secrets" I developed available to all.
Maybe other states do this...not sure? Suggestions? I think I am back to trying for a part time job for a long time to fund the production space. Sigh.
Thanks!

Hi all,

I found this yesterday while looking up the progress for Maryland. I do not exactly now what this means so can someone with more knowlegde than I please explain it to me. The Maryland state governer Martin O'Mally signed bill 255 May 2, 2012 and it says it will take effect Oct 1, 2012. Does this mean the bill will be made law or it still has another part of the process to go through?

The MD bill will become law on Oct 1, the governor signing the bill is the last step in the process.

Georgia's new law just went into effect this month....September 2012. BUT as far as I know they are at this moment not trained and fully prepared to start issuing permits yet. That can change rapidly though.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture is inspecting and approving cottage food kitchens as we speak. Get baking, y'all!
