6 December 2015 – training US small farmers to up-scalePosted: December 6, 2015
Civil Eats has an interesting article, written by Kristine Wong, on a US training programme run by Family Farmed . It aims to help small farmers break into larger wholesale markets. The training revolves around US food safety certification, such as Good Agricultural Practices and Good Handling Practices and is supported by a manual called ‘Wholesale Success’. The struggle to meet exacting food safety and hygiene requirements by small farmers and producers also applies in Europe, and this seems like a worthwhile initiative that could be worth a look.
