A timely find

When I came across the title to this book, I felt instantly excited! Then I discovered an opportunity to review Homemade for Sale, and to pass a copy on to one of my readers for free. (I nearly popped with delight)! I couldn't wait for the books to arrive in the mail. My husband and I dream of running a food business from our farm and marketing our products from a road-side farm-stand (among other things). But like many of you with a similar dream, we don't know how to begin. Homemade for Sale is a timely find!

Why I enjoyed reading this book

Homemade for Sale is well written, with an engaging voice that breathes encouragement on every page. And for good reason! Since 2007's Great Recession (when the American economy took a nose-dive that resembled the Great Depression), most US states have passed laws called "cottage food laws." These laws are designed to make it easy and inexpensive to earn money from home. Now you can make and sell food products manufactured in your own home kitchen, with minimal government interference. Sound appealing? You need this book!

But author's Lisa Kivirist and John D. Ivanko don't just dangle an empty carrot of hopeful promise; they lay out exactly how to make the dream a reality. 

Here's what you'll find inside the book:

  • The new cottage food laws explained

Part of a larger movement

The beautiful thing about the new cottage food laws--and the growing industry of homemade foods making their way to market--is not only that people can earn money by making food to serve their community, but also that a new kind of economy is being promoted across the nation. The cottage food industry supports the core values of buying local and selling local. No matter where you live, there's a definite demand for healthy homemade foods devoid of artificial ingredients and preservatives. If you make it, people will buy it. Now with the help of Homemade for Sale, you'll be empowered to join the movement (and succeed)!
