Oklahoma had a Cottage Food Law presented but it 'died in committee' whatever the heck that means. It's supposed to be re-introduced but I'm getting the feeling there's no big support..at least I haven't heard of any.

The new law goes into effect Sept. 1, 2011, so y'all have the summer to plan your new legal businesses!

Here is a basic summary of the new law. Stay tuned, as this web site will be getting a complete redesign, and will have more information about running your legal home bakery business!

Can anyone help me find where to get what I need to get a tax id and insurance. Are there any other steps that I would need to take? Do I need a business license? I am just so excited and bubbling with questions!

I am sure kelleym is feverishly working away at finding out all the details. I would probably check the Texas Cottage Food website as a starting point and then I would proceed to call 311. They can usually direct you to the correct place. You can also try calling the health dept but as far as I know, they have little involvement in this. There will be alot of inquiring minds in the next couple of weeks about this. Is there a specialty bake shop that sells cake supplies near you that you can ask? Just a start......
