Workshop Session: Friday I
Diversify farm income with value-added products under your
state’s “cottage food” legislation—laws that allow specific, nonhazardous
foods to be made in home kitchens and sold to the
public—from salsa with your extra tomatoes to offering a bread
share to CSA members.
Lisa Kivirist and John Ivanko are co-authors of Homemade
for Sale, the authoritative national guide for cottage food start-ups.
Kivirist, who manages the MOSES In Her Boots project, was a plaintiff
in the successful lawsuit against the state of Wisconsin that lifted the
ban on the sale of home baked goods.
