Cottage Food Laws

Most states across the country have cottage food laws. These laws regulate how home-based food businesses are run. From the amount of money a food entrepreneur can earn to the types of products allowed, laws are different in every state — sometimes every county within a state. It’s important that you know what the law in your state says.
