In 2011, South Dakota created some extra legislation to extend the Home-Processed Foods Law. This allows bakers to sell their food directly from home, and it limits yearly sales to only $5,000. It also doesn’t allow non-baked goods, like jams and preserves, but baked goods do include candy and confections. There is no registration required to sell, although the processor does need to charge sales tax on their sold products, which requires a standard business license. Products do need to be shelf-stable without refrigeration, but lab testing is not required.
Internet sales are only allowed if the consumer picks up the product at one of the processor’s home.
