here in Minn the fed made laws so stringent a lot of the old fashioned church suppers have been given up. Odd how the laws seem to get slanted by our gov for the people and by the people isn't it?

Not sure what you mean By processing/production of food. BTW if I seem ignorant, it's because it hasn't never not been allowed where I'm at. Rocko.

Amish bakery signs all over around here. plus during the summer they will park their buggies just down the street from the State subsidised local farmers market where venders have to privide proof of insurance (Very expensive around here for food venders,& depending upon produce sold ( canned or pickled) are required to undergo state and county inspections, plus pay for lot space.) The Amish parked block away, selling out of their buggy do their business without the regs. How come??? After seeing some of these people, I don't want a loaf of bread they made!!!, yet some people think it has to be the best, as it is grown ((organically)) in fresh, uncomposted cow , pig and chicken dung,HeHe. The Amish baker probably came directly from chores in the barn, to baking bread and pies. LOL

Florida just passed about year ago that allows cottage food producers, mostly farmers to sell jams and jellies at farmers markets. has limits and rules you need to follow. it is a win and step in the right direction for family farmers.

Yeah, a few years ago a State inspector was driving thru Litchfield on a weekend- saw the local farmer's market, HM stuff- shut it down. Yes, for church dinners, all sorts of new rules to comply with. I guess we killed too many patrons (sic).

Almost anywhere you go you will find those who are able to "fly under the radar" so to speak, and prepare home made goods such as cakes and pies for sale without being inspected. Here in North Carolina there is a VERY limited amount of goods that can be produced "in home" for public sale. And you have to be inspected initially before beginning. Most foods require special permits and regular inspections. (I know, before anyone says it, a lot of it is to make money for the state) And while there are many clean and conscientious cooks, all it takes is one sloppy chef to spoil the entire pot of soup!

We were at a rather long equipment demo on the other side of the city one day, working along side of a highway. Someone on the crew must have called someone, as soon a car pulled up with a trunk full of Tacos and assorted other Mexican foods - some in a cooler and some just in a cardboard box.

A couple of us looked over the food and settled for a can of soda out of the ice chest. None of us dared risk eating the food that came from who knows kitchen, but the guys of the same heritage bought that food like it was the last food on earth.

My problem is "Bake Sales" outside of stores. Be it for Cheerleaders, Football, Basketball, Little League, Pee-Wee, etc.

I don't know where, how, ingredients, or conditions this was prepared under.

I usually just make a donation instead and refuse the food.

I never heard of anyone eating at a church dinner get food poisoning. How many people get food poisoning at these fast food joints? or from bad meat from processing plants. or bad peanut butter products?

I can imagine a heavy Amish lady stirring a big pot of jam and sweat drops and underarm hair dropping into the pot. I do not pay extra for Amish products. I think I can make jelly and pickles just as good for myself.

You guys need to learn to stop washing your hands so darned often and eat the food.

We just ran out of volunteers. The same folks did it all the time, and just got tired. I used to see the same folks volunteer at the lodge, church, VFW. My wife and I did a sphaghetti dinner for special olympics for 15 years. It was the same folks all that time. When a couple of the older folks passed, the rest of us just gave up. No younger folks would volunteer.

I live about 10 mi. from one of the biggest Amish comm. in Iowa--There is the main highway thru the settlement called Amish Blvd. It used to be you drove thru there and they all had cows-pigs-chickens--Now the livestock is mostly gone and they run tourist stores--Advertising genuine Amish "STUFF"---I was in our local supermarket awhile back and what did I see? A Amish lady with a shopping cart heaped to the top with frozen bread dough!!! SO-It should be safe???

"the fed made laws"

Ronald - is that a federal law? I just came from a big potluck funeral dinner at one of our local churches. I think here in Illinois they were originally gonna give the church potlucks a shutdown, but the idea was forgotten when it looked like there was gonna be an uprising. There ain't nothing more American than a church potluck!
