While searching on the "interweb" for food law loopholes [such a Pharisee I am!] I found something that caught my eye - "cottage food laws". The article featured a young woman who wanted to start a cake business out of her home, but the state of Florida wouldn't allow it - I felt her pain. That is until Florida passed their cottage food law, the young lady said that many states have them - I stopped reading and started typing.
And low and behold - California just passed its own cottage food law this August and it will be in effect this January! Pinch me, I'm dreaming right? My dream is one step closer to becoming a reality - a tea room of my own, and even in my own home!
There are restrictions to every state's cottage food law, so look them up and get started earning money in your own home- legally! I hope I will be allowed to have a tea room in my home, there is much work to do and many questions to have answered, it seems too good to be true, I hope - Oh, Lord, I hope it is true!
