Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training

Colorado State University Extension, Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association and Colorado Department of Agriculture will be hosting a Produce Safety Alliance Grower Training Course on December 15, 2021 at the Island Grove Regional Park at the Weld County Extension Office. The training is scheduled from 7:30 am -5:00 pm.

This course will provide a foundation on the FSMA Produce Safety Rule requirements, Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) and co-management information, and details on how to develop a farm food safety plan. Individuals are expected to gain a basic understanding of:

  • Requirements in the FSMA Produce Safety Rule and how to meet them;
  • Microorganisms relevant to produce safety and where they may be found on the farm;
  • How to identify microbial risks, practices that reduce risks, and how to begin implementing produce safety practices on the farm; and
  • Parts of a farm food safety plan and how to begin writing one.

The registration fee is $50 which includes a light breakfast, lunch, PSA materials, and a certificate of completion as required under FSMA. Additional registrations from the same farm will be discounted to $15 per person. Note that attendees must be present for the entire course to receive a certificate.
