    Keeping up with state cottage food laws

    Jul 7, 2019

    Cottage food production is a hot industry, so we've compiled all of the state "cottage food" laws that allow people to make certain low-risk foods in their homes with minimal regulatory requirements.  Find the compilation on the website of our partner, the National Agricultural Law Center, here.   The National Agriculture Library at USDA funded this research.
