I just started decorating for family and friends and am eager to do a little advertising (as I'm running out of people to make cakes for ) but when I called the board of health I was shut down immediately with 'It is ILLEGAL to sell any food made from you home in the state of MA. PERIOD.'
Still in the past two days I contacted two seperate bakers that do it from their home. I know MA allows 'farm' kitchens but I don't own a farm. Does it depend on the county?
I'm confused?! Can anyone enlighten me? I want to do this the right way.
Best wishes! -M
Call the board of health! Home baking is allowed but there are some stipulations...My license cost me $100 plus I have to get my kitchen inspected (haven't done that yet). Good luck!
It is legal but some towns just don't want to deal with it.
Used to be in Framingham they would just say no, but I sm working with someone right now to try to get it done.
Thanks! I'm gonna call my Health Dept. again after I call from the state level. I hope its allowed where live
I'll update soon -M
