Farm Food Safety Plan
Food safety starts on the farm. That’s why it’s important that all farms implement procedures to ensure that the food that leaves the farm will be safe when it reaches the family table. All farms selling fruits and vegetables for human consumption are required to follow appropriate food safety and handling procedures as outlined in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Additionally, many end markets require additional procedures be in place before entering into a purchasing contract.
