A home catering permit???
Have never heard of such a thing, state people sometimes have the habit of telling you what you want to hear.....check with your locals as their the ones doing the inspections.
Otherwise, congrats my brother, you are well on your way!

Vermont has some loose catering laws. Lost Nation took us through this a while back.

What you choose to call loose, I bet others call wise!

When are you taking me out for that World Record Blue Marlin?

Thanks for this thread Jim and all who have chimed in.
I'm thinking about doing much the same thing.
Other than doing the meat and sides,
I'm clueless. This has been a big help.

Gotta LOT of work to do before mid May when the market opens.
