Producers! NC Growing Together and Carolina Farm Stewardship Association are teaming up to offer On-Farm Post-Harvest Handling Infrastructure Workshops:

April 16 in ORANGE COUNTY
April 29 in PENDER COUNTY
May 3 in CABARRUS COUNTY
June 11 in YANCEY COUNTY

In these workshops we will delve into how to make the best post-harvest handling infrastructure improvements on your farm to increase efficiency and food safety and to meet wholesale buyer requirements. We will talk about options for pre-cooling produce; on-farm cold-storage; and mobile cooling; cleaning, washing, and sanitizing produce; drying; curing; long-term storage; and how to fund your infrastructure improvements. After lunch, each workshop features a visit to a nearby farm to get hands-on time with their post-harvest handling infrastructure.
