NEW: States that License Home Kitchens - Page 7

post #91 of 433
Ugh, we're not about to get rid of our puppins. Two of the dogs are the in-laws, and the other is my husband's and mine. He is our child, as we're not able to have any right now. SO!!! Now I have to figure out how much it will cost to rent space in a commercial kitchen, and if I can afford that, run a business, and quit my daytime job icon_sad.gif

Hello Tweets350,

There is a commercial kitchen in Portland http://www.bourgeoiszvintage.com/kitchen.html that has a commercial kitchen for rent. That's the only one that is licensed in my database. Hope this helps

Thank you for the info, but Portland is unfortunately an hour and a half away from me here in The Dalles icon_cry.gif I've gotten good feedback from freinds that maybe our senior center or our local community college may have space to rent.

Indiana just passed a new law excluding Home Based Vendors form the food establishment laws. No separate kitchen is required as long as you follow the state's guidelines. Go to in.gov. and click on the health department link. From there click food protection and a new menu will appear. Then click Farmer's market/Value Added Foods/Home Based Vendors and the information will come up in a separate window. It does not list if you have to apply sales tax, so if you find that answer out, please share it! Thanks.

You are absolutely correct. There are now 16 states that have cottage laws.

According to everything I've read, and my own personal interpretatations, the laws in:

Indiana
Alabama
Wyomina

Apply only to farmer's markets. I am not sure why home-baked food is safe at a farmer's market but not a wedding reception, but that's the way I read these new laws.

Thanks for taking the time to put this together for us, kellym. There are so many members here who will find it quite useful.

I have a correction, though. Pennsylvania actually goes by the municipality, not the county. If the municipality does not have it's own health department or regulations regarding cottage law, then the state steps in.

PA does allow for cottage law rules, but they are most easily applied in suburban and rural areas. For instance, in Philadelphia, Allentown, and Pittsburgh, those cities do not allow for home kitchens to be used for commercial purposes. But right outside of them, businesses are popping up all over. We have a few members here who are working out of their home kitchens, right outside these cities. If zoned high-density residential, like my home is, you can't even build a separate kitchen on your property to bake from. And where I live, at least one person in the employ of the business has to be ServSafe certified. Many smaller municipalities do not require this.

Every town around me allows for cottage law rules, with some exceptions. For instance, some municipalities will allow you to run your business from your home kitchen, others will still require you to build a separate kitchen on your property. And wouldn't you know it, we just couldn't get the mortgage to buy the 5-bedroom property we looked at, where they would have allowed me to build another kitchen on the second floor for home purposes, then use the first floor to run my business.

After reading kelleym's post about farmstands, I reread the IN law. It seems that one could sell from their driveway. Also, I noticed that people can consume their own food at a private event at a public or private event. Could the decorator be invited to the wedding or other function and avoid the delivery rule? Anyone have other thoughts?

Anyone know which countie are legal?



I had the same problem when I tried to contact them. I'm in Jackson County, where are you? I need to get back on the ball and see if I can figure this out. Have you made any headway since your last post?

I'm in illinois I just remembered that my wilton instructor had a room added to her home to setup a commerical kitchen, she is legal. However, I do have to enter the kitchen from a seperate door. I'm not sure if that messes up zoning. I also have a friend who parks her lunch wagon in her driveway. So I guess the correct question for me to the health department it how can I set up a commerical kitchen on my property. I hope this helps home bakers in illinois

Playingwith sugar, I live in PA, in a place called Rehrersburg, near Myerstown, about 2 hours from Philly. I am in the Berks County area. Our town is very very small. And almost an hour to Reading. So would I need a license to sell from my kitchen then? This is all so confusing, being a newbie and all. Any info. would be a great help from anyone. Thanks.
