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 one-hour workshop covers the food safety aspect of preparing cottage foods for sale, including preparing, packaging, labeling, storing and transporting cottage foods.
The two-hour workshop combines the business and food safety aspects of preparing and selling cottage foods safely and successfully. These workshops are taught by MSU Extension food safety and MSU Product Center educators.
Participants in the workshops will receive a manual and a food safety participation certificate of completion.
