I am! An hour south of Champaign.
I'm not from the state, but I did live there for 9 years. 6+ in Springfield, 1+ in Bloomington/Normal, and 1 in Decatur. Business took me there from Louisville, Kentucky and business took be back to Lexington, Kentucky. Can't say I miss the place; too flat, no hills or valleys.
You needed to come more northward! Plenty of hills up here.
I'm between Rock Falls & Tampico (birthplace of Ronald Reagon)
Dawndra is in IL also, a couple hours south of me.
I'm east of Muller's farm -- about 25 minutes north, a little west of Chicago; about 1 1/2 hours south of Milwaukee, WI.
I'm still here, NW of the Hub City. I need the space around me, sky - corn and soybean fields - after too many years in the Chicago suburbs. We are in our 9th year out here and still love it!
I live in Champaign but will retire to 12 acres down in Laclede County Missouri in about 2 years.
I live near Decatur. A small area called Oakley.
OK, PLEASE someone help me out. I have been trying to research what I need to do to sell baked goods from home. I just want to do it in winter to supplement my hubbys lay off. I am getting no response from IDPH or macon county health dept. where do I get a food license? I am trying to rent a kitchen to use too. Sheesh. Stephanie
I am 35 miles north of Peoria.
The health dept. offers classes for the food service and sanitation license. Just keep calling until you get a response.
the Hub City??? Rochelle???
(I was there Friday night)
No problems. Most baked goods can be sold without certification or special licenses in IL. This includes breads, cookies, & most pies. You canNOT sell custard-type pies, but fruit pies are fine.
These are state regs.
Now several years ago, I was making and selling a lot of jelly. I would sell it out of my home which was not a problem. I checked with the health dept. about selling it at my mother's store. They said that I could do so as long as it was only available occasionally....not a regularly carried item. So I would occasionally take some there to sell, but most of my sales were done from home or on one of the many scenic drives in this area. I also asked about selling on the scenic drives and they said that is was a "short-lived, special occasion" there was no problem.
Enforcement is up to the county.
My county (Whiteside) would jump all over that and haul me to court. We had to tell them that raw milk sales on the farm was legal in IL.
State regs about canned items are they must be processed in certified kitchens.
