Granholm is signing 2 new laws today that will allow Michigan homebakers to do the following: Baked goods, jam and jellies, candy, vinegar, dried fruit, herbs and mixes made in your kitchen could all be sold publicly provided they are properly labeled to reflect that they are homemade and identify all ingredients under guidelines provided by the state.

THIS IS AWESOME FOR SO MANY BAKERS IN OUR STATE icon_biggrin.gif I might even get back into it!!! icon_smile.gif

ok I just googled the new laws, but it doesn't say anything about home inspections. Do you think we have to set that up, or do you think from tomorrow on out we can start baking and selling so long as it's labeled?

My understanding is we do not have to have a home inspection. If say a customer thinks our home is dirty they can complain and have the health dept. come and check it out. I wish I would of saved the website I found this on.
Does anyone know if we can advertise though?

It doesn't say anything about advertising or not, just no internet or mail order sales. So I'm assuming I can use the internet to advertise, but sales must be made in person?

Home inspection is definitely not required, but proper labeling is required. I just found this helpful labeling guide.

I something about this on NPR. They said that you total sales for the year cannot excees 15,000. I didnt get to hear the whole broadcast. I'm really excited nonetheless.

So if I'm understanding this correctly, if I make a cake for someone and put a label on the box of all the ingredients, I can sell it legally?

Yup, if you live in Michigan. The bill was signed by Granholm on Monday.
