Episode Description:

In this episode, we talk with Val Wall at Whitehorse Meadows Farm about her most significant pest and wildlife issues and how she protects her crops from animal intrusion and mitigates contamination issues when they arise. You’ll gain direct insight into her trials and tribulations and how she built an effective netting structure, ultimately increasing her marketable yield. Later, Karen Ullmann at the Washington State Department of Agriculture will discuss what animal mitigation practices FDA (the Food and Drug Administration) requires under the Produce Safety Rule, one of seven rules under FSMA or the Food Safety Modernization Act. The rule establishes federal, scientific-based standards for minimizing microbial contamination and the risk of foodborne illness linked to fruits and vegetables.
