Writing a Produce Safety Plan for your Fruit & Vegetable Farm

140 Junction Road
Hardwick, VT

Join UVM Extension staff member and Vermont CAPS coordinator, Hans Estrin, for a conversation on how to build a produce safety plan that works for your farm's scale and budget. We will cover ergonomic considerations, smooth material flow, and easy maintenance in wash house design. You will learn how to design a plan for your farm that will meet the safety needs of your customers.

This hands-on workshop is intended for diversified farms with some infrastructure and commercial markets. We will have information and resources available about next steps as you work on these challenges for your business: available funding from the Agency of Agriculture, support in writing a formal plan, paths to getting it accredited or certified, and opportunities to learn from your fellow farmers. Please join us!

Lunch Provided * Please Bring a computer if you have one.
