Cottage Food Producer Food Safety Online Training

Nebraska passed a bill (LB 304) in 2019 which greatly expanded their cottage food law. Before that, homemade food could only be sold at farmers markets.

Producers can sell any type of non-perishable food at farmers markets, public events, from home, and online to anyone in the state of Nebraska.

For sales outside of farmers markets, producers must complete a food safety course, as well as online registration. This is where our course comes in—it fulfills the requirements for registration. This course is written specifically for Nebraska and our regulations, but producers in other states could possibly take this course also to fulfill their requirements.

This law does not allow indirect sales (wholesale, retail stores, etc.), but there is no sales limit and it is very easy and inexpensive to start using the law.
