2011 Southern Wisconsin Fresh Produce Workshop

February 8, 2011 @ 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The workshop will include a variety of sessions presented by UW Extension Specialists and others on production, disease forecasting, pest management, post harvest handling and best management practices for fruit and vegetable growers.

You will hear from Dane County and project partners about a new Wisconsin fresh market produce packing house opportunity! Come and learn how a packing house works, what you need to know to participate, and other exciting details about this potential new market. We also want your feedback and to hear about what is important to you! The afternoon session will have lots of room for questions and discussion – and you will have the chance to meet with large volume wholesale buyers interested in Wisconsin produce.

And you will also hear about safe food handling and information on the new Federal Food Safety bill and what it means for growers.

The agenda and registration form are attached or visit http://dane.uwex.edu/ for more information.
