Overview of Guidance and Ordinances for Cottage Food Laws in Oklahoma

Starting November 1, 2021, Oklahomans can vend homemade food excluding meat, poultry, seafood, unpasteurized milk, cannabis, marijuana, or alcohol. The set limit for yearly sales in a home food business stands at $75,000.

Food Labeling Requirements according to Oklahoma Cottage Food Laws

Labels for any "prepared food" from a "home food establishment" must contain the establishment's name and address, the name of the prepared item, and a specific statement in at least 10-point font and clear contrast, stating "Made in a home food establishment that is not licensed by the State Department of Health." If the product packaging doesn't easily allow for a label, an alternative is a free-standing label near the product or placed on the receipt.

In Oklahoma, a Cottage Food Operation refers to the production of certain low-risk food products in a home kitchen for direct sale to consumers. These foods typically include baked goods, jams, jellies, and other non-perishable items considered low risk for foodborne illnesses.
