there is an excellent article on the Maryland Rural Enterprise Development website www.extension.umd.edu/mredc that addresses starting a Cottage Food Business in Maryland. You can find most of the answers to your questions there. However, you may need to check in with your county zoning regs to make sure your property is approved for this type of enterprise.
