Cottage Baking Law

On October 2, 2017, Wisconsin home bakers became allowed to legally sell their not-potentially hazardous baked goods directly to customers.

Here are two resources that give you all the information needed to understand Cottage Baking Law:

  2. "Best Practices for Selling Baked Goods"

Organic Farm Certification

"As a farmer, retailer or other business, gaining USDA organic certification status is a savvy and ethical business move. However, it's not enough to simply claim "organic." You must make sure that your product is carrying the certified USDA Organic Seal.

The USDA National Organic Standard Seal not only shows your ongoing commitment to a healthy planet but assures consumers and buyers that your product meets stringent USDA organic certification requirements. It will make your product more marketable and profitable."
