Made in a Home Kitchen
When we write “homemade,” we mean it. Lisa Kivirist is one of a team of three women farmers who successfully sued the State of Wisconsin over the fact that the existing ban on the sale of home baked goods was unconstitutional and influenced by big industry and special interests. Thanks to this “Freedom to Bake Caucus” with legal representation by the Institute for Justice, Wisconsin bakers throughout the state can finally bake and sell their amazing homemade baked goods.
A national leader in the cottage food movement and champion of home-based food entrepreneurs, Lisa and her husband, John Ivanko, co-authored HOMEMADE FOR SALE (homemadeforsale.com), the authoritative national guide to launching a food business from your home kitchen. Lisa Kivirist is the instructor for the best-selling online Udemy course, How to Start and Market a Food Business from your Home Kitchen (https://www.udemy.com/course/how-to-start-and-market-a-food-business-from-your-home/?couponCode=OCT2022). Both spearheaded the Home-based Food Entrepreneur Virtual National Conference in 2021; taped sessions from the conference can still be viewed on Gumroad (https://www.renewingthecountryside.org/cottage_food_con).
Savor democracy in action every time you bite into one of the baked treats handmade by Lisa and her family on their Wisconsin farm and bed & breakfast, Inn Serendipity (innserendipity.com). Featuring organically grown, farm-raised and local Wisconsin ingredients, our baked goods represent more than a cookie or a loaf of bread. They represent the freedom to earn. Come share and be a part of the sweet victory of fighting for what you believe in and the collaborative success of us all. From melt-in-your-mouth, buttery sugar cookies to traditional European rye bread, we're eager to share the flavors from our kitchen with you, your family and friends.
Our story doesn’t stop with great tasting product. We believe in protecting and preserving the environment, too. That’s why our operations are powered completely by sun, using photovoltaic system to generate electricity on site. Deliveries are even made with a Toyota Prius Prime, a plug-in electric hybrid car recharged by the sun on the farm.
