A newly proposed legislation in Montana and California could see the local food being promoted big time. The proposed Local Food Choice act would see the sale and consumption of homemade foods and in turn promote the agricultural sales, farms, and home-based producers.

Mandatory licensing, permitting, packaging and labelling would be exempted for such producers and it could be a law that might trend in the near future.

The rule is still in its infancy and it would be interesting to see how it impacts as a whole.
