On September 21, 2012, Governor Jerry Brown of California signed the Cottage Food Bill AB 1616. After the efforts of thousands of supporters and backed by Mike Gatto, CA State Assemblyman, we succeeded and triumphed for California's right to produce and sell non-potentially hazardous food {you know these as baked goods, cookies, cakes, jams, nuts, popcorn, etc.}, thus supporting local businesses and boosting our communities. This victory in California, which was spurred by the success of about 30 other U.S. states and has inspired many more states to begin their own grassroots movements, shall be a declaration to our nation that we, as citizens and residents, are supportive of our neighbors and communities, that we desire to see, help, and aid in their existence, that we are reliant on one another, and dream of a free nation where our abilities, talents, and freedom to express them will be limitless. We are so thankful for the passing of this Cottage Food Bill, for the positive changes we are experiencing, for the rebuilding of lost hope, and the reunification of our fellow Americans.

Cottage Food is homemade with love. It is made by artisans, passionate about their craft and eager to share. Cottage Food is food for our soul, and September 21st is a day to be recognized and celebrated. Before there were jars and cans on the shelves of your local grocery store, there were neighbors inviting neighbors over for dinner, swapping recipes, and sharing their latest creations; jams, pickles, brittle. We build and achieve dreams based upon our memories, and no memory is greater than our first homemade biscuit, warm slice of bread, fresh slice of pie, or a classic chocolate chip cookie with an ice cold glass of milk.

We can do this together!

September 21, come and celebrate Cottage Food Day!!
