Farmer Happenings

COMING UP IN THE AREA:

MONDAY November 12th Clayton 11 AM: Food Hub; Have you ever wanted to preserve and sell produce that is NOT COVERED under Cottage Food License? Many items like syrups, pickles, and salsas need to be prepared in a commercial kitchen and labeled properly to be sold at farmers markets. This tour of the only rentable shared kitchen and Quick Freeze equipment I know of in the region will hopefully guide folks in the right direction for selling prepared/processed local foods. If you do have experience with label, co-packers, and shared kitchens, please come to share your experiences. 46 Plaza Way, Clayton, GA 30525 See on map | Add to google calendar
