Jumpstart to Farm Food Safety Project for Maine Residents


Cooperative Extension at the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire have partnered on a three-year grant to assist Fruit and Vegetable farmers in Maine and New Hampshire with farm food safety planning.

The project will fund an Extension Educator, trained in Produce Safety, to work with you one-on-one on your individualized farm food safety plan.

Fill out the form below to apply to participate in the project.

Participation is on a first-come-first-served basis, as well as farm size (small to medium-sized farms, not fully covered by FSMA, will be given preference).

If the stock number below is 0 (out of stock) and you want to be added to a waiting list, please go directly to our Jumpstart to Farm Food Safety Project Waiting List Form.
