Cottage Food Law

What Is Cottage Food Law?

Cottage food law refers to the legal requirements and regulations established by state and local governments around selling homemade food products. 

These laws can include restricting sales to non-perishable foods, placing an income cap on sales of homemade food items, and requiring you to pass a home inspection before legally operating your business.

However, these regulations differ from state to state, so it’s important to read up on the requirements for your state.
