Crop safety topic of farm workshop

— Those interested in taking advantage of crops that can be grown commercially, but do not require hundreds of acres, can register for the second of a two-part series sponsored by USDA’s Risk Management Agency and Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension, a media release states.

The workshop is slated May 8 at Neng Thao’s Farm, 5684 U.S. 412 in Rose, beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing through mid-afternoon. Afternoon presentations will be held indoors at the First Baptist Church of Leach, 5804 U.S. 412 in Rose.

The application of a farm food safety plan for growers is the initial step in providing safe and nutritious fresh produce for market. The food safety workshop will train and certify fresh market farmers in food safety techniques.

A traditional Hmong luncheon and refreshments will be provided.

There is no cost to attend, but participants are asked to pre-register: Jensen, (405) 744-9826 or jennifer.jensen
