For producers who are growing and selling food for local, direct-to-consumer and wholesale markets, minimizing on-farm food safety risks is a high priority. If your operation involves on-farm workers or interns, or if you are planning to scale up your production in the near future, it becomes even more important to have routine checks in place. Join us for this informative, full-day workshop in order to keep yourself and your farm business ahead of the curve when it comes to food safety. Led by expert OMAF staff, you will learn practical approaches on how to address and minimize the top three on-farm food safety risks: worker practices, water use, and cleaning and sanitation. We'll also have OSCIA staff on hand to provide information related to the Growing Forward 2 funding that's available to help you implement your food safety plans.  

In addition to a great lunch and a full day of expert training, you'll also receive the following on-farm food safety resources:

  • On-Farm Food Safety Good Agricultural Practices manual ($25 value)
  • Nine different Food Safety posters to display around your workspaces
  • USB drive containing several useful factsheets and food safety resources
  • Self-assessments and action plans to help strengthen your Growing Forward 2 applications
  • Certificate for completing the workshop
