Oklahoma recently passed a cottage food law (HB 1094 – The Home Bakery Act of 2013), which went into effect on November 1st, 2013.
Oklahoma’s cottage food law only allows producers to sell certain types of baked goods, and sales are limited to $20,000 per year. Unlike most states, baked goods made with fresh fruit are not allowed. No special license or permit would be required.
Unfortunately, producers may only sell from home. This ruling has caused a lot of controversy because there is not bill language 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 on July 1st, 2013, which allows small-scale honey producers to sell without much regulation.
An amendment to the cottage food law (SB 1915 – The Safe Home Food Manufacturing Act) was introduced in early 2014, but it was not passed.
Baked goods with fresh fruit or meat are not allowed.
