Is your Farm Covered by the Produce Safety Rule?
November 6, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm| $10
Farmers need to protect customers when they purchase fresh produce from farms. Most food contamination happens early in the production cycle. This workshop will share information about the FDA produce safety rules, and demonstrate proper procedures to follow these rules.
This workshop will provide a guide for farmers to plan and respond to food safety issues. We will introduce a simple step-by-step planning process, and identify potential risks and challenges in practices.
Space is limited to 15 people and pre-registration is required. Walk-ins are accepted the day of the event ONLY IF there are spaces available.
