Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm signed into law two new bills that allow home kitchens to make and package certain "farm market" foods in their home kitchen and sell or distribute them to the public.

The law covers businesses that gross less than $15,000 annually. The foods include: baked goods, pies, cereal, candy, dry mixes, popcorn, coffee and other items.
