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!
