    I’m starting to mill flour from wheat, rye, etc. that I am growing on my farm. I want to sell at farmers markets, online, and local retailers. Do I need a food processing license in Iowa? Is flour a hazardous or non-hazardous food item? I’ve asked the iowa Dept. of Ag and they don’t know…anything. Any insight from anyone would be appreciated.

    Flour is most definitely non-potentially hazardous! (I’m surprised the ag dept doesn’t know that)

    What are you using to mill the flour? Are you doing it in your home kitchen, or with some specialized equipment in a different building? It appears that the cottage food law may apply to you, but you might have special circumstances that prevent you from taking advantage of it.
