Kentucky Cottage Food Law

1,537 Signatures Goal: 1,000

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.

Is there a cause you really care about? Start a free petition like this one and make a real difference.

    The current KY cottage food laws are very restrictive and exclusionary and need to be brought up to date. Most states have cottage food laws that allow home bakes goods such as cookies and cakes. KY please follow this trend. There are many people depending on this type of income.

    as a recent culinary graduate trying to start a catering business has been very hard with the laws that are in place. They are to restrictive and need to be changed. Most of the major businesses today where started in someones home. Changing the laws would not only help small businesses just starting out but also the state economy.
