Illinois has an expansive cottage foods law that allows people to sell a wide range of non-hazardous foods produced in home kitchens to the general public. The recently passed Home to Market Act expands the possibilities, including the option to sell online and ship items within the state.
Join us virtually to learn more about what is allowed under the cottage foods law, the certifications required to get started, and the possibilities for your own cottage foods business with Molly Pickering, Deputy Director at the Illinois Stewardship Alliance. We’ll also hear about the organizing efforts of farmers that helped to pass this law and how everyday people can get involved. Then, hear from a panel of farmers and cottage foods producers making unique food products and how they are reaching customers.
Registration is free and required. http://www.fwsoil.org/field-days.html
