Michigan State University Extension will present the workshop, “How to Start a Successful Cottage Food Business in Michigan,” from 2 to 4 p.m. Thursday April 22 at the MSU Extension Monroe County office, 963 S. Raisinville Rd., Monroe, Mich.

Cottage Food items are meant to be prepared in a home kitchen and then “face to face” at outlets such as vendors markets.

Michah Loucks and Jeannie Nichols will discuss the Michigan Cottage Food Law guidelines, tips on how to make your business profitable, foods that one is permitted to sell on this program, and food safety procedures.

The cost is $20 a person. A certificate of participation will be available after the training that one can display at a vendor booth. While that certificate is not required to sell cottage foods, it does let buyers know that you have taken this workshop.
