Kentucky Cottage Food Law

I petition my Kentucky state legislators to enact a Cottage Foods bill authorizing the Department of Agriculture to issue customized Home Bakery licenses/permissions to residential kitchens for the purpose of selling non-potentially-hazardous bakery products, such as, but not limited to: breads, cakes, doughnuts, pastries, buns, rolls, cookies, biscuits, and pies. This law will help create employment opportunities for state residents currently out of work. It is acknowledged that the cottage food laws may require food processors to pay a license and/or permit fee. It is this licensing requirement that could bring in money for the entire state or partially pay for any cost incurred for additional regulatory program operations. This law will also allow small commercial bakery owners to operate from a home-based location should their business revenues start to decline due to changes in the economy.

  • Crystal Logan This would be an amazing opportunity for myself as well as my family. With having a disabled child, as well as my fiancé back from Iraq war disabled it has left me unable to return to work after the birth of our son two years ago. I was the head baker and cake decorator at a bakery and have been unable to work in my profession due to my family situation, so this would be of great value for me, I would be able to work while being home with my family. Hope this bill passes
