Cottage Food Program Begins October 1, 2015
Beginning October 1, 2015, Montana has implemented a cottage food program that allows certain food items to be produced in a home kitchen and sold to the public. The list of products allowable to be sold under this program is limited and specific to foods that have very low risk of causing foodborne illness.

Production of cottage food products requires a special registration and submission of labeling information, as well as submission of fees. To inquire about this program, contact Stephanie Ler at 406-433-2207.

The rule notices are posted below. Official copies of the rules will be posted as they become available.
