NOFA-NY Training on Food Safety at Dairy & Field Crop Conference

What: The New Farm Food Safety Rule—How Does it Affect Your Farm? From 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn about the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), how it affects your farm, what you might need to do to comply, and have all your questions answered! It will cover the fundamentals of food and produce safety and why you might want to take an official Produce Safety Alliance training, even if your farm is exempt.

Write Your Farm Food Safety Plan! 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Farm Food Safety Plans aren’t required by FSMA, but are requested by some wholesale buyers and are a good way to look at your farm and identify any problem areas to improve on-farm food safety! The session provides an overview of a farm food safety plan, discussion of how to write one for your farm, and time to create your farm’s plan with trainers on-hand to help.

Who: The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY)
When: Tuesday, March 6th; 10:00 am -12:00 pmn & 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
