"The Homemade Food Act





  What does it mean for Starting Your Own 
Cottage Food Industry, this Thursday?

     Join us this Thursday, January 10, at 7 p.m. at The Petaluma Seed Bank (199 Petaluma Blvd. North in downtown Petaluma) and learn about the California Homemade Food Act  (“cottage food law”), which makes it easier for people to make food products in their homes and sell them to the public. 

    This special free talk will be presented by Frederick Smith, COO/CFO of Forage Kitchen, SBDC Consultant, and active member of Slow Money Northern California. Frederick’s talk will specifically address the implications of the Homemade Food Act for Sonoma County citizens.

Video Recording?

Do you know if this presentation will be recorded?  If so I would love to get access to it to watch and also assist with putting it up on youtube for more open access.  I just wish I was not 3 hours away - I would attend in person.

Cottage Bill video?

I'll make that suggestion to Paul Wallace at the Seed Bank. I know they have done it before but don't know the prep time that is needed to do that.  They may already have it in the works.  I'll check and let you know!!! Darn that travel time... where's a "transporter" when you need one.
