Looks like the sale of homemade baked goods in Wisconsin would be allowed under a bill being circulated in the state Senate.
Wisconsin and New Jersey are the only states prohibiting the for-profit sale of baked goods made in a home kitchen (mind you, New Jersey is the state that wouldn't allow you to pump your own gas.) Similar bills have passed the state Senate with bipartisan support the past two sessions but died in the Assembly. The latest proposal would allow up to $7,500 of home-based good sales each year, though it would require the seller to register with the state and meet requirements about labeling, training and documenting sales. Of course, red tape and paperwork, right?
This will come as welcome news to my friend who bakes interesting brownies. I'll definitely tell him about this!
