Michigan State University Extension offers both one and two hour workshops on Michigan’s Cottage Food Law. This law allows residents to prepare and store certain foods in a home kitchen. The two hour workshop combines the business and food safety aspects of preparing and selling cottage foods safely and successfully. The two hour workshops are taught by MSU Extension food safety and MSU Product Center educators. The one hour workshops cover the food safety aspect of preparing cottage foods for sale, including preparing, packaging, labeling, storing and transporting cottage foods.
Participants in the workshops will receive a manual and a food safety participation certificate of completion.
