Type: Project (Food Safety Outreach Program - FSOP)

Educators will work with Amish and Mennonite farmers to help them gain knowledge of food safety, so that they will be ready to attend a FSMA training and implement food safety practices on their farm.The educators will be working to create resources and trainings that are relevant to the communities& cultural norms. This includes many one-on-one meetings, field meetings, and handouts. Trainings will be conducted in a way that farmers are working hands on to create food safety practices and document them that are relevant to their particular farm.
