Yeah the state number didn't return my call today and the county was rude and just said no. I feel like I am getting no where fast with this.

Well, you may not be getting anywhere because it isn't allowed.  Aren't you close to Springfield?  It looks like there is a commercial kitchen/incubator there you may be able to rent space in.  Or you can find a local restaurant that may allow you to rent space during their downtime.

No I am an hour and a half from Springfield. The reason I do this from home is because I have a 5 month old that is exclusively breast fed and I can't leave him.

Believe me in not trying to break the law..that's why I'm doing my research.

I'm in IL where we're also only allowed to sell foods not baked in a commercial kitchen at farmers markets. Not much use to me when there are only farmers markets for 3 months of the year. It's hard having to say no to people who see and eat my cakes at the parties I take them to.

If you can't seem to find the right people to answer your questions, go to a restaurant in your town and ask for the name and phone number of the person who inspects their kitchen.  (Tell them why so they don't think you're reporting them.)  The people inspecting restaurants also deal in the Cottage Food Law.  In my town, it's the Board of Health that oversees everything.   Good luck!

Here is another link:

from what I can get, no, you can not do this out of your home kitchen, but all the answers on this page refer back to your local area.  In the question about home business they only mention jams and pickles, not baked goods.

 

So, how about building a second kitchen?  Is that a possibility on your part?

 

My state of Pa allows a second kitchen inside the home, that is separate to be used.

 

You may be able to contact the state Department of Agriculture, that is who governs home baking here in Pa.

 

But, you also may not be able to do this in your county, and that is why you are getting nowhere with your local office.  It looks like Missouri governs county by county.
