Here is a link to the final bill, which takes effect immediately:
http://www.scstatehouse.gov/sess119_2011-2012/bills/4689.htm

No wholesale allowed. If you make less than $500/year you don't have to do anything, if you make $500-$15,000/year you must apply to the state DOA for exemption from inspection and a label review, and if you make over $15K/year you are not covered under the CFL.

Congrats to SC home bakers!

For more info there is a Facebook page for the SC CFL:

South Carolina Governor Haley signed the cottage food bill on June 7, 2012. If interested, please go to http://www.facebook.com/SCCottageFoodLaw to get more information on the requirements and how to get started. In response to a post about facebook not being an effective way to commuicate to others about getting a cottage food law passed in your state...I must tell you that IS the way we did it in SC! It spread all over the state through our facebook page. We also had an online petition that was very effective in convincing some reluctant Senators that their constituents wanted this law. We also used the state web site to send emails to our Senators and Representatives, and got as many people to do it as we could. We have a very small core group of women who went to their Senators and Representatives to ask them to sponsor the bill, and ended up with three bills in session at one point. All you need is one sponsor to get the bill going. When it goes to committee, be available to go and speak about what the bill would mean to your state. We started our cottage food law movement last August and now 10 months later, we have the law in place. So I say to the states who want this law...go for it!!!!

South Carolina tipped the scale - now more than half the states in the US have some sort of cottage food law. icon_smile.gif

Hi

Just joined today to see if I could get some advice on starting a home business. I want to do cupcakes and pullaparts. I've been decorating off and on for about 16 years.

Thought you should have more up to date info.

I'd appreciate any advice given!

Carol


This is a direct quote from the Division of Food Safety on the "Fresh from Florida" website.

During the 2011 Legislative Session, the Florida Legislature enacted House Bill 7209 allowing individuals to manufacture, sell and store certain types of cottage food products in an unlicensed home kitchen. The Cottage Food law became effective on July 1, 2011. To better assist prospective cottage food operators, the Division of Food Safety (Division) created a draft guidance document which contains more detailed information regarding cottage food requirements. The Division plans to update this document as further information becomes available, so please check back often!

Hello, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction to find out if Guam allowed home baking. I'm a military wife and would like to sell once there. Thanks

Although I am not positive, I have heard from other military wives that you need to check with the Base Commander. If anyone else knows the procedure, please post!

Just found out online that home baking and selling is legal in Guam. Of course there are inspections and fees, but I am super happy to be able to sell in Guam. You also have to have a seperate entrance from the outside of your house to the kitchen. The inspector isnt allowed to walk through private living spaces. As for on base, I do believe it has to be cleared through the base, but since I will not be living on base I am clear!

Thank you for the update.

Illinois should be green...found the ok for home bakeries directly from the link included in the chart and here is the section verifying it as it was a little difficult for me to find at first...

(C) Baked goods, such as, but not limited to,
breads, cookies, cakes, pies, and pastries are allowed. Only high-acid fruit pies that use the following fruits are allowed: apple, apricot, grape, peach, plum, quince, orange, nectarine, tangerine, blackberry, raspberry, blueberry, boysenberry, cherry, cranberry, strawberry, red currants or a combination of these fruits. Fruit pies not listed may be produced by a cottage food operation provided their recipe has been tested and documented by a commercial laboratory, at the expense of the cottage food operation, as being not potentially hazardous, containing a pH equilibrium of less than 4.6. The following are potentially hazardous and prohibited from production and sale by a cottage food operation: pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, cheesecake, custard pies, creme pies, and pastries with potentially hazardous fillings or toppings.

The name of the section is:
PUBLIC HEALTH
(410 ILCS 625/) Food Handling Regulation Enforcement Act.

Yes, the old Excel spreadsheet is not being updated any more, as the thread is so large that people will never wade through it to find the most updated version, and there were repeated problems for some users trying to download the spreadsheet. This is the page where I keep all the information:

Illinois allows sales at farmers markets only.

Kelley, New York should be added, we've had a cottage food law since the early 1970's. http://www.agriculture.ny.gov/FS/consumer/processor.html There are a few restrictions, but many people here earn a living with their Home Processor permit.
