Produce Farmers Are Food Handlers with Atina Diffley

January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Free – $10

Whether your primary goal is to establish or improve produce safety practices on your farm or to pass a food safety audit, a written food safety plan is a critical and helpful business tool. A food safety plan, written specifically for your farm, provides a valuable road map to guide and reinforce practices effectively. It also serves as an effective training tool for employees and reduces workload by identifying risk and focusing food safety practices where they are specifically needed. This hands-on, produce safety class is spread over a 6-week period. Farmers are guided step-by-step through the process of writing a food safety plan. Class time includes practical discussion on scale-appropriate and cost-effective strategies for implementation of food safety practices.
