Cottage food laws in Virginia - Page 2

post #16 of 26
Thanks! I did tell the dept representative that I lived in Arlington and she's sending me the packet still so I'd imagine Arlington itself does not prohibit home baking sales. Perhaps it has more stringent rules than other counties though. Sigh. Do you happen to know of an online source for Arlington rules?

Or if you'd be willing to put me in contact with that friend to ask some questions that'd be greatly appreciated! But I totally understand if you're not comfortable with that icon_smile.gif.

I'm not familiar, and my friend could well have been wrong... icon_smile.gif

We live in Fauquier County, one indoor/outdoor cat and one small dog but I need a stay at home job for that 2nd income to make it in this bad economy. I love making cakes and am told I am rather good at it, I cannot afford a huge fee/permit, I am hoping I am not out of the game simply due to not being able to afford a 2nd sink, pets, not a nice enough kitchen or the such.

I will be checking further though but it doesn't look good for me so far.

Does anyone have any new news regarding the Cottage Food Laws in Virgina? We are moving there soon and I am looking for any and all information that I can find. Thanks!

Virginia's cottage food laws vary by city. Norfolk doesn't allow it but most cities do...

There's nothing new overall. You can call the Department of Agriculture and ask them if they have any printed information, When I  moved here they had a package that they sent me with info about starting a business in Virginia.

Thanks BatterUpCake! We will be moving to the DC area, probably 30 minutes to an hour out. But I thought now is the time to figure out the cottage law in different towns and such before we move. Thanks!

LOL..DC is further than that! Unfortunately DC is not part of VA and they currently (at least as of June) have a CFL. The one in the proposed bill would only allow sales at farmer's markets http://cottagefoods.org/laws/usa/district-of-columbia/

Further than that? DC is right next to VA, and it sounds like they would be moving to NOVA, 30-60 min outside of DC. icon_razz.gif

ACCORDING TO VA CODE 3.1-398.1  Private homes where the resident processes and prepares candies, jams, jellies not considered to be low-acid or acidified low-acid food products and baked goods

that do not require time or temperature control after preparation if such products are: (i) sold to an individual for his own consumption and not for resale; (ii)  sold at the private home or at farmers market and labeled " NOT FOR RESALE-- PROCESSED AND PREPARED WITHOUT STATE INSPECTION"

 

 

I went to a farmers market and found several  people who follow this code.
