    Can you believe it, now there is Support for the  Florida Food Freedom Act of 2010 - This bill is not exclusive to small farms but small local food producers and will allow home food processing of non-potentially hazardous products like bread, cakes, cookies etc. The interesting thing about this bill is they are requiring small food processors to get food safety manager certification. Don't know how that will change anything, I think you must recertify every year. Watching this legislation closely. Those in Florida can contact their representative to show support.
