Kentucky Cottage Food Law

1,528 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.

    Please, please allow us to sell these products out of our homes! Many people living in Kentucky have incredible skill to offer their communities, and we are being intentionally held back from sharing. Being one of the three most prohibitive states is NOT something that Kentucky should be proud of!

    Iam a chef living in Indiana with 11 acres in south central KY. I was hoping to supplement my retirement selling Cottage Foods. I guess I should have done more research and bought somewhere else. This needs to be changed! Dried, cured, smoked, fermented and pickled items should all be included.

    Please allow people to produce baked goods from thier home in a non commercial settings. Many of us love to bake but could never afford to open a commercial business, this would help us suceed in extra income.

    Please allow our residents to make quality products in their home. The revenue taxable amount will be minute but the morale will be amazing!
