The Hudson Valley Farm Hub along with NOFA-NY will be holding a half-day workshop on post-harvest considerations in the wash line and packing house. This is just one of many NOFA-NY's On-Farm Field Days being held in various locations throughout NY.
At this Post-Harvest Training workshop, Robert Hadad, Extension Vegetable Specialist from CCE Monroe County will tie food safety practices to the wash-and-pack, covering facility design, product flow, wash techniques and sanitizers, cleaning and more.
Farm Hub staff will offer a walk-through of our newly constructed wash and pack facility, which features three separate climate-controlled rooms capable of long-term storage of root crops; a brusher-washer and vibrating sorting table; and tubs for hydro-cooling broccoli.
Location: Hudson Valley Farm Hub, 1875 Hurley Mountain Road, Hurley, NY 12443
Pre-registration is strongly encouraged for all field days. Fee is $15/individual, $25 for two or more people from same farm, unless otherwise noted. Pre-registration closes three days before the event.
