MICHIGAN CONSERVATION DISTRICT
Produce Safety Technicians
Michigan is the only state with a Produce Safety Technician program dedicated to providing on-farm technical education for fresh produce farmers. Better yet, technicians are a free, voluntary, confidential, non-regulatory resource.
HOW WE CAN HELP
PRODUCE SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENTS
A PSRA is a way for a farm to ensure that they are following best produce safety practices.
An OFRR is a voluntary, free, and completely confidential service to prepare growers for a potential future inspection.
A technician can meet with you on your farm and help you come up with an action plan to implement certain practices or procedures.
This website contains resources and information on how to interpret the newly proposed FSMA water rule.
"Even though you may think you're doing everything as safely as it should be done, it is very helpful with elevating your farm practices by having a professional come see your place and offer suggestions. This definitely helped to make improvements to my business and in safety here at my farm."
