cottage food community


Oklahoma passed a cottage food law in 2013 (HB 1094 – The Home Bakery Act of 2013), which is a fairly restrictive law. Producers can only sell certain types of baked goods, and sales are limited to $20,000 per year, but no license from the health department is required.

Unfortunately, producers may only sell at their home. This ruling has caused a lot of controversy because there is not language in the law to back it up, but the health department has taken a firm stand that that is their interpretation of the law.

In addition, the “Oklahoma Honey Sales Act” (SB 716) went into effect in 2013, which allows small-scale honey producers to sell without much regulation.

An amendment bill (SB 696) did not pass in 2015, which would have allowed more types of cottage food businesses and sales venues. However, it was not popular with some people using the current law, as it would have forced them to get trained and submit product labels before continuing their business. A less restrictive version of this bill (SB 1915) also did not pass in 2014. For updates, check out this facebook page.

I am looking into selling baked goods in my home via advertising by fb twitter and ads in the paper does this or will this fall under the home bakery were they can order and pick it up and can I serve lattes and coffee with this ?

    You can advertise online and sell items that get picked up at your home, but you can’t run a home bakery shop, where you serve hot drinks and/or have signs in front of your home advertising it. People should be picking up packaged and labeled items and then leaving — or you can deliver. If you want to open a coffee shop, you need to do it outside of a neighborhood and talk to the health dept about the licenses and processes required.

We are thinking of making and selling roasted pecan butter from our house. The pecans come from a tree in our backyard. Do you know where I need to look to find the regulations regarding sale of this item? Thank you.
