California’s new Homemade Foods Act: What do you Think?


Hello crafters. I host a weekly Google+ hangout on air called Food Makers and I’m looking for folks interested in appearing on the show this Wednesday at 2pm PST to talk about the new Homemade Foods Act.

How will the new rules affect you? Do you think the new legislation a good thing? Will it help you “go pro” and bring your food to market? Or do you think the law falls short and doesn’t do enough for start-ups as detailed in this article here? Do you live in a state with a similar law? Please get in touch with me at and let’s talk.
