- What Are Cottage Foods?

Because our homemade pies require refrigeration (and due to cottage food laws in Arkansas), each are produced in a rented commercial kitchen, the name and address of which is identified on our labeling.

In Arkansas, the sale of Cottage Foods does not require a permit or license from the Arkansas Department of Health ("ADH"). According to section 20-57-201 of the Arkansas Code, a “Cottage Food Production Operation” means a person who produces food items in the person’s home that are not potentially hazardous foods, including without limitation:
- Bakery products
- Fruit butter
- Chocolate-covered fruit and berries that are not cut
Food items that are considered "potentially hazardous" do not qualify as a Cottage Food and, therefore, do require a permit or license to sell from the ADH. These items include:
- Food items that must be kept refrigerated or hot to remain safe (Examples: cheesecakes, Tres Leches cakes, cream or cheese filled items, cream pies, meringue pies, custard pies, items containing meat, and cream cheese based frostings or fillings.)
- Food items made with splenda and similar sugar substitutes
