Law status: ENACTED

Missouri does have cottage food laws, but they are different than every other state in that each county in Missouri has its own laws.  You must check with your county to see what cottage food laws apply to you.

There was a bill in early 2013 that would have created universal cottage food laws across the state, but it’s been indefinitely postponed.
