Cottage Food Act

Now that the November 3rd elections are over,
it's time to get busy! 

In order for the Cottage Food Act to become a law that will allow us to sell home baked cakes and other goods, we will need Representatives from Florida to help us get this bill passed. And in order for that to happen, we need to make it known that there is a need for change! Please help us inform the Representatives that there are many bakers (and friends and families of these bakers) who are on a mission to have the law changed! If you would like to help, send a letter to your local State House Representative (which you can find by clicking on this link). Just click on the "Find Your Representative" button on the top, left hand side of the page and fill in your information. There may already be letters being sent to them, but every letter will count and hopefully persuade the Representative that this is an important matter! If you are unsure of what to write, here is a sample letter revised by Barbara Schmal that can be copied, then emailed or mailed in. You can also call your Representative with the number given on the same website. To make sure our voices are heard, it would be best to keep writing, emailing, and calling every week!

Also, if you or someone you know is willing to contact (or has contacts in) the media, radio, tv, or newspaper, it could help by getting more people aware and involved. The more we have, the better!

Barbara Schmal is the lady behind the online petition that I posted about previously. If you have any questions or can offer more help, please contact her at

Now let's get busy!!!
