Okay, I'm running into roadblocks here! I'm in Benton, not Little Rock, and am having problems getting any real answers. Several phone calls & left messages to the Dept. of Agriculture with no response. I called my city zoning department, they told me I need to call the Health Dept. and get approval first. So I call both the State & City of Benton Health Dept. and they both basically tell me the same thing. No requirements outside of what is stated in the law, they don't perform inspections & I don't need approval from them to do it. I call to see about getting a business license. They tell me to call the County Clerk's office to get a Privilege License, then come to them and get my DBA. So I call the County Clerk and they tell me that I need to call the City Clerk (which as far as I can tell is the same person I talked to in the Zoning Dept). When the City Clerk calls me back, she tells me what I need to do to get a Privilege License (I need to get a Home Occupation Permit, not sure if that is in addition to a Privilege License or in place of it). Then when I mention the Cottage Food law to do home food processing she tells me that they probably won't allow me to do that because the city hasn't met to discuss that yet; she also tells me that since that was signed in the most recent legislative session that the law won't go into effect until July 1 anyway. Now, in reading the law myself, it looks to me like this was to go into effect immediately (there is actually the section at the end that indicates it is an emergency action so that people can do this legally during this farmer's market season). So, I am now at a loss as to how to proceed further. As far as I can tell, people aren't real knowledgeable about this law and thus choose to either put it off on another department, or try to discourage you from proceeding with it. Does anyone here have any suggestions for who I can call, maybe at a state level, that might be able to clear this up for me? Thanks!
