Kentucky Cottage Food Law

1,578 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.

    It's time, Kentucky. This law is entirely too prohibitive and prevents many talented individuals from practicing their craft. How can most afford the land needed to produce enough base ingredients for such things as baked goods? Impossible for most.

    Help me make Emma's Donuts from a stay at home mom a reality. I live on a dairy farm. The milk is produced here, I can purchase the eggs from a neighbor, but I cannot produce flour! Change Cottage Laws Kentucky
