Do your research. Have you considered using your own home kitchen to make food products? If you do not have animals living in your home, and you have city/well water, and you’re making a “low-risk” product, such as baked goods, you may be eligible to produce your product in your home kitchen. For more information, please contact the North Carolina Department of Agriculture.
If you would like to use the Value Added Kitchen, you’ll need to attend a 1.5 hour Value Added Kitchen Sanitation and Food Safety Training. This is held monthly and the orientation will go over policies/procedures and basic food safety. Visit our Madison County Center calendar to find out the upcoming dates and register to attend. They are held at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Madison County Center, 258 Carolina Lane in Marshall.
