Interested In Becoming a Cottage Food Producer?

Colorado’s Cottage Food Law allows individuals to sell certain kinds of non-potentially hazardous foods at farmers markets that have been produced in unlicensed home kitchens.

Cottage Food products include such items as spices, teas, dehydrated produce, nuts, seeds, honey, candies, jams, jellies and certain types of baked goods.

While not required to obtain a Retail Food License to become a Cottage Food producer, interested individuals ARE REQUIRED TO ATTEND a food safety course to ensure proper preparation, handling and storage of food items.

Our local CSU Extension Office has 2 such training opportunities scheduled in June!
