Description

Value Added Food Production at Flavor Market



Are you interested in adding value to the fruits and vegetables, livestock, or other products that you raise, rather than just selling the raw commodities? In this workshop, we will provide information on grants available to help in getting started with value-added production, food safety regulations for value-added production, tips on marketing of value-added products, and will hear from farmers who have been able to successfully navigate all these topics to successfully produce and sell value-added products. We will be touring Flavor Market value-added kitchen to learn more from the owner, Ami Zumalt, about their value-added enterprise, which includes jams, jellies, pickles and gluten-free items. A delicious lunch of locally-produced value-added foods will be provided with the registration cost. Everyone is welcome to attend.
