Start a Food Business from your Home Kitchen

Browntown, WI
Share this event:


Launch a food product business from your home kitchen.  Yes, you can! Join co-authors Lisa Kivirist and John Ivanko as they offer a crash course, based on their book HOMEMADE FOR SALE, on becoming food product entrepreneurs in your home kitchen. Nearly every state now has a cottage food law that applies to baked goods and/or high acid canned food products like pickles, preserves, jams and jellies.  Lisa served as a plaintiff in the successful lawsuit that now makes it legal to sell baked goods made in your home kitchen in Wisconsin.  Adults-only workshop.

From pies to pickles, wedding cakes to bread, preserves to decorated cookies, fledgling food entrepreneurs now have the freedom to earn, producing non-hazardous foods in their home kitchen and selling them to the public. Finally, "homemade" and "fresh from the oven" on the package means exactly what it reads.

BONUS: A free copy of Renewing the Countryside: WISCONSIN will be given away to every family, couple and/or household registered for a particular workshop (a $26.95 value); the free book giveaway is limited to one copy per residential address of attendees.

About Lisa Kivirist and John D. Ivanko:

As a pioneer in the cottage food industry, both covering the national movement for publications as well as championing for the passage of a "Cookie Bill" in Wisconsin, Lisa Kivirist is on the cusp of the latest trends. Lisa and her husband and co-author-and-photographer, John Ivanko, are food-loving entrepreneurs.

As authors of fifteen books, national speakers and recognized spokespeople for the national sustainable agriculture movement, Lisa and John are regular presenters at numerous national conferences and library, university and community events. They're co-authors of Farmstead Chef, the award-winning ECOpreneuring and Rural Renaissance. John is also the co-author of several award-winning children's multicultural photobooks, including To Be a Kid, Be My Neighbor and To Be an Artist.

Lisa and John are both sought-after experts for the media. They've been featured in The New York Times, USA Today, Conde Nast Traveler, MSNBC and on various radio programs across the country, including Martha Stewart Radio, the Sirius Satellite Network and Good Food on KCRW. As freelance journalists, they're contributors to Mother Earth News, Hobby Farms and Natural Awakenings, among many others. They also blog for MotherEarthNews.com.

CANCELLATION POLICY: NO REFUNDS.  SOIL SISTERS has a no refund policy. You can, however, transfer your ticket to another person, provided that person is in possession of the ticket at the time of the workshop.
