It’s official. The new Ohio Dept. of Ag Cottage food rules were released. The rules now allows for a variety of new foods to be home produced, without the need for an inspected commerical kitchen. This opens up opportunities for small food producers to expand into new areas with little overhead cost. It also expands new products available to consumers at farmers’ markets.
The new rules are available in (pdf document) at the ODA web site: New Cottage Food Rules.
