Description:

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) now governs all food and feed producing farms in the USA. How it impacts your farm in particular depends largely upon your gross annual sales and the types of markets where you sell. On Friday, 2/23/18, NC Cooperative Extension offers a free “Six Steps to Safe Food and Legal Sales for Small Farms under FSMA” workshop in Taylorsville, NC. The workshop will take place from 11:00-2:30 PM at the Alexander Extension Learning Center (376 1st Ave SW, Taylorsville NC). This workshop is free and open to all current and potential farmers of vegetables and fruits at any scale. A sponsored lunch will be provided.

The FSMA for Small Farms workshop will cover 6 Food Safety Practices essential for all farms. These are the practices that are expected by the FDA, by wholesale buyers, and by knowledgeable consumers. The workshop will then help participants walk-through an “Exempt or Not? Navigating the qualifications” exercise to determine how the FSMA Produce Rule will govern each participant’s own operation. Certain scales and types of farms will be legally required to demonstrate their food safety compliance with additional records and data, but many local family farms will be able to operate under the “Qualified Exempt’ status built into FSMA in order to reduce burdens on small farm operations.

Workshop leaders will also educate participants in how FSMA will affect any CSA’s & Food Hubs that growers many be part of, and focus on the confluence of required practices under FSMA as a preparation & requirement for potential GAP audits & certifications.

Interested growers should register by 2/20/18 by e-mailing Lenny Rogers at lenny_rogers@ncsu.edu or calling the Alexander Cooperative Extension Center at 828-632-4451.
