Wisconsin Home Bakers Cottage Food Law

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I am trying to get a Cottage Food Law passed in Wisconsin. I could really use help. I have started an on-line petition for Wisconsin residents to sign. I have to put the finishing touches on letters for lawmakers and would like to personally hand deliver them to lawmakers in the future. Would anyone be interested in going to Madison as a group to find lawmakers that would be willing to support a CFL and/or be the author of the bill.

Here is the on-line petition, your can share it with friends and family.

Not sure why but a password protection was put on the petition. So weird, since I didn't do that and others had signed it. Oh, well it's up now.
Glad to know that others want to sign because I was feeling sad to see no one has signed it since 1/17.
I am still finishing the letter to lawmakers, hopefully will get this done in the next week. I want to start a facebook page to post information that is easily accessible to others. I need to come up with a logo for it... so if anyone has any ideas, I am open to it. Colorado CFL has an awesome logo if you need some ideas. icon_biggrin.gif

YAY! thumbs_up.gif

Hmmm, i like their logo but it's a little blue icon_lol.gif I would definitely like to help out in this matter in any way that i can!

Last night i found a new site that listed WI as having a cottage food law icon_eek.gif I instantly sent them an email and said they needed to read the part in the WI Agriculture PDF they had listed on their site that specifies where you can cook...if some people found that they would have been sooo happy and then let down icon_sad.gif

I spoke with Dept. of Ag today and found out a representative is already looking into a Cottage Food Law, he called it the cookie law icon_smile.gif After talking with several people it is not a published bill it's only in the beginning stages. I have left a voice message with this representative. This is great news as this has started the ball rolling into amending the statue so that anyone can have a home baking business in Wisconsin quicker than if I had started it. If you haven't done so already and live in WI please sign the petition below and share with friends and families in WI. I don't know if the plans would be to get it into this session or not. It would be great if it was!!

Is there or is there not a cottage food law in WI? Someone posted in another thread, a map of states with cottage food laws and it says Wisconsin is one of them.

http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&p=7265121#7265121

Then I search online and found this website, which claims WI has a cottage food law:

I am planning on moving to WI next year and I am hoping thay have a cottage food law thumbs_up.gif

there is one in the works now! but both the website and the forum is incorrect icon_sad.gif I have already written to that website and told them they were incorrect and they need to read the PDF in which they included from the Dept. of Agriculture where it specifically states that you need a "separate kitchen" with a separate entrance if it is attached to your home. this is nothing like a cottage food law in my understanding.

welcome to WI when you get to Gatu! icon_lol.gif where will you be living?

Thank you step0nmi for clarifying whats going on.

About 10 years ago, I used to live in a small town called Cambria but then moved to Georgia. I want to move back to Sun Prairie or nearby by next summer. Too much crime here and getting worst everyday. I also missed going to the amish store on Saturdays . icon_biggrin.gif
