Event Details

Produce Safety can be Practical and Affordable for Small Farms!

With the increase in food borne illnesses associated with fresh produce, more and more produce buyers are asking the farms they buy from if they have a farm food safety plan.  UVM Extension’s Center for Sustainable Agriculture is offering a  day-long hands-on workshop on writing a farm safety for small and diversified fruit and vegetable farmers who market directly and locally.

You will go home with a two-page draft of your own On-Farm Food Safety Plan with specific action-steps needed to implement it. This can be shared with interested local retail and wholesale customers.

Morning:

  • Learn the fundamentals of produce safety for small, diversified farms
  • Identify actions to increase produce safety, quality and efficiency on your farm

Afternoon:

  • Catered lunch
  • Visit Deep Meadow Farm to observe and discuss their on-farm food safety practices, how they were implemented, and their impact on produce safety and farm management.
  • Return to class to discuss and finish plans

Many hands make light work - we encourage multiple participants from one farm! If two people are attending from one farm, the cost is $15 per person
