Cottage Food Bill: Instantly Turns a Profit

Ann Arbor Food

Just a few days out from Jennifer Granholm signing the Cottage Food Operation Bill, Inchworm Bakery (That’s me) is happy to announce that we sold out of our local peach pocket pies at the Westside Farmers Market. Many were amazed that this bill became a law so quickly. There was a buzz with other farmers, and venders about food products they would like to make and offer at the market. I was the first one out of the gate, but more will soon follow, and thanks to this new law, a diverse and exciting range of Michigan Made food products will be available.

We plan to use as many Michigan ingredients as we can. All of our baked goods will use organic Michigan Flour.

Next weeks offerings will feature Michigan peaches, cherries, a chocolate pie, and local apricot pocket pies. And Emily will be featuring shortbread cookies.

  1. I also was able to immediately take advantage of this brand-new situation!

    With the popular GT’s brand Kombucha being suddenly taken off the market, there are a lot of kombucha-drinkers looking for a local alternative. I began home-delivering my home-made kombucha to customers in the Ann Arbor area for a fraction of the store cost and people are soooo happy.

    I am glad that lawmakers have put these protective measures into place – protecting the rights of local, real-food enthusiasts, I mean!
