Phil Tocco will be presenting on produce handling, including wash stations, on-farm and at the farmers market food safety and how to increase shelf-life. He will also be talking about digital record keeping in order to track your production and sales so you can figure out how you can work and produce more efficiently. Phil has been tracking the Food Safety Modernization Act and can share some best practices for dealing with requirements we may face and how to meet them in the context of a small farm. He will be able to answer questions as we go through the presentation so that you can have it be as applicable to your farm as possible.
