Information for Commercial Growers

Information on:

  • Food Safety. Keep all your records of everything. If you don't write it down, it never happened in the eyes of the inspectors. The Food Safety law doesn't go into effect for a bit, but packing houses are already requiring much of what the new laws will ask for.
  • Permitting wells. This is now required for new land owners, but there are some exceptions.
