What Is Home Bakery Insurance?

Our insurance for home bakery businesses offers coverage where you need it most. General liability protects against third-party bodily injury and property damage claims. Product liability alleviates costs associated with foodborne illness claims, while tools and equipment insurance (Inland Marine) can cover damaged or stolen equipment. 

Liability claims have the potential to financially devastate your business, which is why we offer different coverage limits and options so you can create a policy that will protect your unique business needs. Home bakery insurance can mitigate or even eliminate the out-of-pocket costs that claims often bring. 

Do I Need Insurance to Sell Baked Goods From Home?

It depends on where you live. Cottage food laws determine if and what you can sell from your home, and these laws vary from state to state.

Investing in home baker insurance is a smart way to protect your small business, wherever you live.

How Much Does Insurance for Home Bakers Cost?

The cost of home bakery insurance starts at $25.92 per month or $299 per year.

Factors that can affect the price include:

  • The state you do business in
  • The gross income of your business
  • The coverage limits you choose 
  • The coverages you include on the policy

What Risks Do Home Bakers Face?

While it’s exciting and rewarding to start a home bakery, you should be aware of potentially costly scenarios your small business could face. There are many risks involved in running a home-based bakery, such as:

  • A customer getting food poisoning from a pastry you sold them
  • An unlabeled allergen sending a customer to the emergency room after they ate one of your cookies
  • Your kitchen flooding and damaging some of your equipment
  • A guest tripping over a power cord and spraining their wrist while you were running a kitchen demonstration


These types of risks can all result in claims that lead to attorney fees, medical bills, and equipment repair or replacement costs. Without insurance, you could be held liable to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket.
