Wisconsin Food Cottage Law

1,035 Signatures Goal: 1,000

I petition my Wisconsin state legislators to enact a Cottage Foods bill authorizing the Department of Agriculture to issue customized "Home Bakery" licenses to residential kitchens for the purpose of selling non-potentially-hazardous bakery products; such as, but not necessarily limited to: breads, cakes, cookies, doughnuts, pastries, buns, rolls, biscuits, and pies (except meat or cream pies).


This law will help create jobs for people who are out of work and for those who stay at home with their children.Cottage food laws, which exist in over half of the U.S. states and in every region of the country, open up new possibility for small-scale enterprise and localized food production.Removing the significant financial and logistical barrier of having a commercial kitchen makes starting one’s own community-based food business more feasible for a greater number of people. It also gives consumers access to a greater variety of home-cooked locally-produced foods.This law will also add protection for those who have store front bakeries who would be able to conduct business from home if something were to happen to their business or should their business revenues start todeclinedue to changes in the economy.
