Pohatcong joins movement to legalize home baked goods in N.J.

New Jersey is the only state in American that bans the commercial sale of home baked goods.

At least one town has had enough. 

This week, the Warren County community of Pohatcong passed a resolution in support of Senate Bill 1768, legislation intended to repeal the baked goods ban.

The Democrat-run N.J. Senate Health, Human Services, and Senior Citizens Committee has refused to post the bill for further consideration.

Americans for Prosperity’s New Jersey chapter chimed in to praise the town’s governing body’s decision.

“This is clear evidence that support for home bakers continues to grow in New Jersey, and that now is the time to pass Senate Bill 1768,” said AFP-NJ Director Erica Jedynak. “We thank Mayor James Kern for leading the charge in Pohatcong, and we encourage other municipalities to join the movement. The senate shouldn’t get in the way of entrepreneurs eager to succeed.”
