Hi all Virginians!
I was reading the Dept of Agr. website for more information on licensing a home based bakery, but I could not find any info.
Does any of you have any helpful information on how to get a permit and if you really need one when you are baking very few cakes part time?
Thanks a lot!!
In Virginia it is allowed by the state but then it is county by county.
It depends on if the county follows the 1998 Food Act
I'll give you a quick list but call into dept of ag and get the application
Arlington - no
Falls Church - yes
Fairfax county -yes
The more rural your county the more likely to allow
check out the info here
calling you local clerk's office is a good way to get the proper info. hth!!
Thanks a lot everyone!! You are very savvy
