Wyoming Cottage Business Food Law

Aug 27, 2009

The state of Wyoming now allows food products that are not potentially hazardous to be made in home kitchens. These food products can be prepared for sale or use only at farmers’ markets, roadside stands, private homes and at functions including, but not limited to those operated by not-for-profit charitable or religious organizations. It is recommended to contact the Wyoming Department of Agriculture or local health departments as to the foods that are allowed. View WY Cottage Food Business Requirements document.


Non-potentially hazardous foods means any food that does not require time or temperature control for safety to limit the pathogenic microorganism growth or toxin formation.  Some examples of non-potentially hazardous foods, but not limited to, would be baked breads, cookies, muffins, double crusted pies, dried cake and seasoning mixes, jams and jellies that are not low sugar or made with artificial sweeteners. The private home kitchen is exempt from licensing and inspection.


Food Safety training is recommended and good sanitation practices must be followed. Questions can be emailed Linda Stratton or Dean Finkenbinder
