When: Thursday, June 14 from 2-5 pm

Where: SAHC’s Community Farm at 24 Mag Sluder Road, Alexander, NC 28701

This workshop will provide fruit and vegetable growers with tools to reduce food safety risks and meet market requirements. Join us for an on-farm learning opportunity to identify potential food safety concerns and explore strategies to minimize potential contamination.  NC Cooperative Extension agents Elena Rogers and Meghan Baker will walk us through a mock audit at SAHC’s Farmer Incubator Program vegetable processing facility, currently farmed by Headwaters Market Garden. We will troubleshoot aspects of bringing products from field to market. 

Find out about the myths, truths and what you could do to become GAP (Good Ag Practices) certified and food safe! This  workshop is open to the public; everyone is welcome!
