Cottage Foods Workshops

Do you make and sell baked goods, home-canned pickles, salsa, jam and jellies?  Are you a cottage food producer?  If yes, this workshop is for you.  By attending you will meet the training requirement to register as a Minnesota food producer.

Here are some comments from participants who attended some of our earlier workshops:

"Really good workshop!" " Great mix of learning stations and activities." "Very fun. I would recommend this class." "Excellent workshop! Questions were well answered."

Please open the Cottage Foods Workshop Schedule attachment to see when and where a session will be held near you.  For more information and for registration flyers for those later in the year go to the website listed on the schedule.
