Home Bakery

* Due to Iowa Code changes, new home bakery licenses will not be processed until January 2023 based on guidance from the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals.

A home bakery establishment is a business on the premise of a residence where potentially hazardous bakery products are prepared for consumption off-the-premise.

Potentially hazardous bakery products are those that require refrigeration, such as: soft pies and items with custard or cream filling.  Annual gross sales of a home bakery establishment must be under $20,000.
