You need to ask your state's Department of Health (or go to their website) to see what your state requires for licensing. Also, some states now have what is called a cottage industry law that allows you to prepare homebaked goods, jams and jellies and sell them either at a farmstand or at farmers markets without being licensed as a commercial kitchen (Indiana and Michigan both do).

Way to go, Sam!

Karen, what's required for a domestic kitchen license? I assume it's a state license?  I'm sure it's similar in all states, though.

Quick update on my writing for the American Preppers Network.  My first column has been the Home Page Feature Article this week.  I'm on cloud 9.

Wow, Karen, good for you on all fronts. We have wrestled with the AI thing, good for you for getting it done.  And congrats on the kitchen.  The dream progresses.

Jeremy, you've come to the right place.  We're farmers, gardeners and homesteaders, we don't know the meaning of the word 'tired'.  Actually, that might be the only word we know the meaning of..... but we're glad you're here.  Welcome aboard.

I just found this group and sounds like alot of what I am interested in and want to do.  I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions for everyone.  Hope you don't get tired of me!  :)

I completed my AI class this week so I will be able to breed my cows without the need of a bull around the farm.  I have to say, I enjoyed the class very much. 

And, **ta-da*** I passed my final inspection for my domestic kitchen license so I will be able to make breads and jellies to sell at the Farmer's Market this year.  Can't wait to get started!

Congratulations Sam!  That is awesome news about your writing gig.  I have signed up for their newsletter so I am sure I'll be reading your articles.

Congrats on the writing job, Sam!

Aquaponics is going great! We have ours in a PVC greenhouse so we can control extreme conditions. In the winter we use heaters to keep the water warm and in the summer we use a water cooler to keep temps below 100%. So our greenhouse growing season is all year for things like lettuce & some other veggies. Our water never drops below 70 or goes above 90. Tilapia do very well here. I breed Nile and sell the fry to other aquapons, so it pays for itself.
