Farm Food Safety
Farming is a risky business. Farm food safety allows you to manage that risk especially if you are selling your products to a vulnerable population such as schools. Farm food safety allows producers to evaluate potential hazards to their products, to create measures to prevent contamination and to develop written food safety plans.
Food safety plans allow producers to enhance worker sanitation, harvesting, handling, packaging, storage and transportation standards of fresh produce. Overall, the plans help a producer protect their product from "seed" to "sold". By completing a farm food safety plan, producers can differentiate themselves in the marketplace and appeal to many consumers who perceive this training as an added benefit.
For these reasons, attend a Food Safety workshop in Nebraska to help you develop your own Farm Food Safety Plan!
