Victory for grandmothers: Court rules state can't prohibit their food sales

• by Bob Unruh

It's being called a victory for grandmothers, although it actually will help entire families.

A court in Wisconsin ruled that the state cannot ban people from making and selling homemade, shelf-stable foods directly to consumers.

helf-stable would mean foods like fudges, doughnuts and roasted coffee beans that do not need any refrigeration to stay safe.

It's the Institute for Justice that announced the victory in its court fight, citing the decision from Lafayette County Circuit Court Judge Rhonda L. Lanford.

She concluded that "Wisconsinites may use their own home kitchens to support their families with sales of safe foods," the IJ reported.
