Who should attend: Any farmer interested in improving the safety of their produce and learning how to create a food safety plan for the farm; any produce grower who grows, packs, harvests and/or holds covered produce, makes over $25,000 in annual produce sales (on average, based on the past three years of sales), and does not qualify for a Produce Safety Rule exemption is required to attend this training under new federal regulations.
