The most recent expansion of Wyoming’s Food Freedom Act went into effect this summer, and as with the state’s previous groundbreaking initiatives to diversify food supply, the new allowances have been quickly embraced by entrepreneurs.

The state’s first version of the law passed in 2015, and enabled the direct sale of some homemade foods directly from producer to consumer, exempt from licensure, regulation or inspection. Regulations were rolled back further in 2017 and again this year to allow a greater variety of shelf-stable and perishable foods to be sold to an informed consumer.
