Resources sent to Small Farmers

Recent emails to our participants have included several resources to help them create and become more familiar with food safety plans.

Hello Everyone,

Please remember to change these templates to be specific to your farm.
Make sure you are completing the activities that are included in your food safety plan. Here are some templates for logs.
