Small-scale farmers often have many questions and ideas about how to design a post-harvest cleaning and packing area in a way that meets their needs while minimizing cost. Recently, with the implementation of the federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), farmers have additional questions about what they must do to legally comply and to minimize food-safety risks. The post-harvest area of the farm is a location where the potential for contamination is often found when best practices are not utilized. During this workshop we will discuss practical ways to reduce food-safety risks in the post-harvest area of your farm, as well as different types of post-harvest designs. All these are geared towards small/medium, diversified, and organic farms.
