Fresh produce safety for small scale intensive vegetable and fruit producers workshop

On November 12, Dr. Chris Gunter and I presented at the 26th annual Sustainable Agriculture Conference hosted by the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association. Our presentation, “Fresh produce safety for small scale intensive vegetable and fruit producers” discussed good agricultural practices (GAPs) and the opening markets project. Attendants ranged from small farmers to representatives from industry groups. At the beginning of the workshop, attendants participated in a hazard identification exercise reporting possible hazards on their farms and determining practical risk reduction strategies.

Here are the presentations.
