Are you thinking it is time to write a harvest guide or an employee training manual? How about getting more disciplined about managing what you have in storage? Believe it or not, writing a farm food safety plan can help you reach these other goals! Good food safety practices are grounded in good organization and hygiene and sanitation practices, so when you develop a produce safety plan, you can reap benefits in operational efficiency and produce quality. UVM Extension’s Center for Sustainable Agriculture, will offer five full day workshops on practical food safety for small and diversified farms who market directly and locally. You will leave this workshop with a concise plan (for you, your customers, and your employees) and many resources!
