Michigan's Cottage Food Law was approved in 2010. This law allows those with an entrepreneurial spirit the opportunity to prepare and sell certain homemade foods prepared in home kitchens. Cottage foods are non-hazardous foods that can be safely kept at room temperature and do not require refrigeration. This workshop will give you information on how to safely make, label and sell cottage foods. MSU Extension educators Wendy Wieland, business consultant and agriculture specialist and Jennifer Berkey, food safety educator, will present the business and food safety aspects of preparing and selling cottage foods.
