Petitioning Idaho State Legislators

Create a Cottage Food Law Bill


When legislators ask, “Why should we have a cottage food law in our state?”, the answer is clear; a cottage food law offers citizens of the state an opportunity to start a small business that will bring much needed revenue to the community.
There are currently 12 states that do not have a statewide cottage food law or any type of cottage food initiative. The states are Alaska, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, and South Dakota. This might not mean much to some, but in 2011 six states drafted and voted into law, cottage food legislation allowing home food
processing.
