Gluten Free Cottage Law Business

Everything is Gluten Free operates as a “cottage law” business. Moonbeam prepares all baked goods inside their home, not at a storefront bakery. You’ll find their baked goods at local markets and pop-ups. Due to cottage law rules, they are not able to ship.

Dedicated Gluten Free Kitchen

What about the chance of cross contact with wheat flour? Moonbeam shares “I am a dedicated gluten-free baker. We do not bring any gluten into our home as I have Celiac Disease and my oldest son is gluten-intolerant. I even react to touching gluten, without ingestion.

1. What inspired you to become a baker? Why the focus on gluten-free? 

I have loved baking since I was a small child. My family is Pennsylvania Dutch, and I loved learning cultural recipes with my Grandmother and Mom. That passion grew throughout my life, and when I was diagnosed with celiac 11 years ago, I was determined to still be able to make my favorite things. 

2. Are there other highlights of your products?  Dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free etc? 

I do have a few dairy-free items but do not specialize in any other allergen. Growing up on the East Coast, I like to specialize in the baked goods I was raised eating. This includes bagels, sticky buns, and my almond cake. I also sell artisan jams that are gluten-free and vegan.

3. What steps do you take to ensure that your products are truly gluten-free? only use certified products? call companies?, etc ? 

I only use products labeled/certified gluten-free. I currently use Bob’s Red Mill oats in my baked goods. However after learning more about purity protocol oats, I will be switching to Bakery on Main. I do not use any gluten free wheat starch in my products.

4  Can you share a story of a customer who’s been greatly impacted by your business? 

Here is my favorite review: “This is the most wonderful place for gluten free baked goods ever! Moonbeam is so friendly and kind. The pumpkin rolls and new cinnamon roll recipe are amazing! I am unsure how gluten free food tastes so accurate to the gluten-full counterparts I have grown to miss. Your baked goods make living with Celiac Disease easier.”
