Below are links associated with the New York “Cottage Food Laws” governing the operation of home-based cooking and baking. In New York, without a proper exemption, the general rules under the Agriculture and Markets Regulations apply. New York provides for a “Home Processor Exemption” and registration process, which, generally speaking, allows for sales of home cooked/baked goods without the many regulations that generally apply to the manufacturing and sales of food items in New York. There are, however, limitations under the Home Processor Exemption, such as the types of food products covered by the exemption, how the sales may be made, and where the products may be sold.
