Cottage Food Law Class – Athens

Farmers Market

Are you familiar with the Alabama Cottage Food Law?

As of June 1, 2014, the Alabama Cottage Food Law took effect.  This law regulates the sale of edible products from a person’s home.  The Cottage Food Law allows individuals to sell non-hazardous food products at state sanctioned farmer’s markets.  The law regulates several aspects of selling home made food products including what can and can not be sold, where it can be sold, the total annual sales, labeling and more.

If you are interested in selling your products you will need to be certified.  Come to our Alabama Cottage Food Law class June 6th and learn all you need to about the law to protect yourself and others.

When: June 6, 2016 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Where: Limestone County Extension Office, 1109 W. Market Street, Athens, AL 35611

This is certification class, so there is a $25.00 charge. 

For specifics on the class and the Cottage Food Law, contact Christy Mendoza, Regional Extension Agent for Food Safety & Quality.
