This week we started Lettuce 256 Plants, Tomatoes 1021 Plants, Peppers 875 Plants. Bunching onions and Carrot flats in the basement. Put a dozen Tomato Plants in the green house.
Tuesday I attended the 8 hour FSMA PSA Grower Training Course
the Produce Safety Alliance (PSA), a partnership created between Cornell University, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and FDA in 2010.
Under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), and co-management of natural resources and food safety. I attended the PSA Grower Training Course to satisfy the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirement outlined in § 112.22(c) that requires ‘At least one supervisor or responsible party for your farm must have successfully completed food safety training at least equivalent to that received under standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by the Food and Drug Administration.’
I will be receiving a certificate from the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) that verifies I have completed the training course.
This course was presented with the help of “Producer Safety Alliance” MFMA (Minnesota Farmers Market Association) Minnesota Department of Agriculture, Minnesota Farmers Union, and University of Minnesota Extension.
