The food preparation facility must be adequately equipped and fully satisfy all food facility requirements of Chapter 500, F.S., and section 5K-4, F.A.C."

I guess it would be a 'no' in Florida, too! Not surprising, though.....Statoe of Florida will squeeze every nickle they can out of you!!!!!

Oh my goodness...please keep us posted if you hear! I love it and would love to make money from it, but not enough to find somewhere besides my own kitchen to do it. :/

Hello everyone,
I am still working on getting the Cottage Food Act passed in Florida. So far State Representative John Wood is interested in helping and after the elections in November Janet Long is also interested. I will be doing a phone interview on WFLA 97am in a couple of weeks. I have a meeting planned on September 11th, at 1:00pm at the Cheesecake Factory in Tampa at the International Mall. We will be discussing ways to get the whole state involved with getting this bill passed. We have been sending the letters to the state representatives and hope we can get more to support the bill. If anyone would like to come to the meeting please PM me with your RSVP.

SOUTH CAROLINA ::As defined in Regulation 61-25 an Occasional caterers do not need a permit under one condition. Occasional caterers shall provide food to a single client and shall not exceed four functions in a twelve-month period, do not possess a business license, and do not advertise.

Caterers that exceed the above will be required to obtain a permit.

I want to cater all of the time. I understand that I will have to obtain a permit under Regulation 61-25. Will you give me a permit for my home kitchen so that I can caterer more than is allowed for the occasional caterer?

It is very rare for a home kitchen to be permitted under Retail Food Establishment Regulation 61-25. This is because of the need for commercial hoods, commercial dish machines, approved commercial well or municipal water source, grease traps, approved wastewater disposal and other requirements of the regulation that most home kitchens cannot meet. One additional requirement is a separation of the family kitchen from the permitted kitchen is required. It is required by regulation that No operation of a retail food establishment shall be conducted in any room used as living or sleeping quarters(Regulation 61-25).

Resources available:

* Regulation 61-25 - Retail Food Establishments (pdf)

It's called the Florida Food Freedom Act, and you can read more about here: http://www.farmtoconsumer.org/aa/aa-26feb2010.htm

I noticed there was a question mark for Kentucky...KY does NOT allow home permits. I didn't read all of the posts so I'm not sure if this was pointed out before or not.
post #266 of 435
KY is limited to farmers or those in Agri-Business. There are restrictions, but those living in non-rural, urban areas cannot bake from home. If you want the specifics just email me I will send the pdf (reg).

[quote="kelleym"] Can anyone open the Jan 2010 document (page 12) and maybe email it to me or post it again or something. I need a more up to date list than the one for 2008. I've got a news crew up in Jacksonville that is interested in doing a story on the Cottage Food law (or lack there of) in Florida. I'd like to be able to tell her which states have them, or how many at least.

Thanks!

What do you mean by a home based kitchen? I built a 500 sq ft onto my house going through the zoning dept., and health department. I have a totally separate kitchen that is inspected, insured and legal. So I have two kitchens, our personal one and the commercial one. Just wanted to clarify that even in GA where it's listed as not legal, you can if it's done right. I was inspected by the health department for four years and now the dept of agriculture for the past 2 years. Thanks! Jen

For the purposes of this thread, a home kitchen is your own kitchen where you prepare food for your family. It is not in any way a reference to a separate kitchen attached to your home or your property.
