Make a product; jump through hoops

Through Facebook, I found a former co-worker has started a business in Crozet.
It's a home recipe with a dash of government help - and hoops to jump through.
Peg’s Salt is classified as dry goods but before she could start packing up jars there were zoning issues and health department requirements to satisfy. “If you’re doing something in the kitchen, the health department has to come approve it and the zoning has to be approved. It’s neither fast, easy or inexpensive. You can’t just start to throw your food together willy-nilly. I really appreciate all this, but organizing my production around all that was really nuts."
Best of luck with the new business.
