Wyoming Food Freedom Act

With ‘The Wyoming Food Freedom Act’, Wyoming’s local food economy has gone from one of the most regulated, to the leader in deregulation of direct-to-consumer farm and cottage foods. These Wyoming PBS videos explore the larger implications of ‘Food Freedom’ for Wyoming. 

The Act allows Wyoming farmers to sell many goods they couldn’t in the past, such as raw milk, eggs, and fermented foods. Wyoming producers have the opportunity to model to other states that less regulation of locally-produced foods can be safe and good for local economies, and it has done so.  

On March 4, 2015, the Wyoming Food Freedom Act was signed into law. Now direct-to-consumer sales by farmers and food artisans are free from state license, permit, inspection and labelling requirements.
