Food Safety Course for Produce Farms – Mankato

March 14 @ 10:00 am - 3:15 pm

$15

This workshop provides a deep dive into Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) on the farm. GAPs are science-based, farm-level practices for keeping fresh produce safe.

GAPs training is for farm owners, workers and gardeners who grow, harvest and pack fresh vegetables for sale to all markets, including farmers markets, CSA, retail, schools, restaurants, or who donate produce to others.

Trainers include experienced produce farmers and UMN Extension staff who will cover all aspects of on-farm food safety.

Renewing the Countryside will also host a farmer/buyer networking event after the GAPs training. Local farmers and buyers can connect one-on-one about what they’re interested in buying and what they grow and produce. Bring your business cards!

Agenda

  • 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., GAPs training (lunch included)
  • 2:15 – 3:15 p.m., Farmer/ buyer networking
