Starting a Farm- or Home-Based Food Business – 2021 FEED Series

This session was presented on June 7, 2021

This session covers opportunities for adding value to your farm products, or for preparing foods in your home kitchen for sale. We will look at a variety of licensing exemptions for sales on-farm and for making products in your home kitchen. And we’ll hear from an entrepreneur with experiences to share that may help you be successful operating in this space.

Presenters: Angela Moragne, That Salsa Lady, Founder/COO; Dr. Barbara Ingham, UW-Madison Food Safety Extension Specialist
