Cottage Food Operations Workshop – Sacramento

This event has passed.


The California Homemade Food Act (AB1616) allows individuals to prepare and package certain non-potentially hazardous foods in private-home kitchens referred to as “Cottage Food Operations” (CFOs). Processed meat, dairy, fermented foods, and juices are NOT legally acceptable cottage foods.

This hands-on workshop series is designed especially for farmers of fruits, vegetables, nuts, herbs, and honey interested in making value-added products in home kitchens as Cottage Food Operations (CFOs). Workshop series is open to everyone.

Learn about:

  • Cottage Food Law
  • Food science and sanitation
  • Hands-on demos with jams/jellies, honey, nuts, dried fruit, and/or baked goods
  • Packaging and storage
  • Business operations for CFOs

This is a two part workshop. You must attend workshop #1 in order to attend workshop #2, but you need not attend at the same location.

Space is limited, register online.
