Hi Friend,

Unfortunately, House Bill 1785 (HB 1785) did not pass the Agriculture Committee on January 16, with just 5 yes votes and 17 no votes.

If passed, HB 1785 would have increased local food options, consumer choice, and possible revenue streams for Virginians by legalizing the sale of homemade yogurt and homemade baked goods that need refrigeration, as well as increasing the amount of homemade pickles that can be sold.

If you took action and contacted your lawmakers, THANK YOU! Look for a similar bill around this time next year.

Thanks to Virginia Independent Consumers and Farmers Association (VICFA) for publicizing and pushing for this bill.

HB 1785 Virginia Pickles | 703-208-FARM (3276) |
8116 Arlington Blvd Suite #263, Falls Church, VA 22042, United States
