• HOMEMADE FOR SALE

    From farm-to-fork and "Buy Local" to slow food and handmade artisan breads, real food (made with real ingredients by real people) is in increasing demand. Cottage food laws in the United States have been passed in many states, although they vary in regulation from state to state.* Finally, "homemade" and "fresh from the oven" on the package can mean exactly what it says.

    Homemade for Sale is the first authoritative guide to conceiving and launching your own home-based food startup. Packed with profiles of successful cottage food entrepreneurs, this comprehensive and accessible resource covers everything you need to get cooking for your customers, creating items that by their very nature are specialized and unique. Topics covered include:

    • Product development and testing
    • Marketing and developing your niche
    • Structuring your business and planning for the future
    • Managing liability, risk, and government regulations

    You can join a growing movement of entrepreneurs starting small food businesses from their home. No capital needed, just good recipes, enthusiasm and commitment … plus enough know-how to turn fresh ingredients into sought-after treats for your local community. Everything required is probably already in your home kitchen. Best of all, you can start tomorrow!

    *We recommend checking your state’s laws before starting a home-based food business. Also, we are not aware of any laws that authorize home-based food businesses in Canada.
