New Regs for Direct Market Producers!

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has recently implemented new regulations related to direct marketing and food safety. While they could increase growers' costs, they also have the potential to foster more favorable market conditions for smaller farms engaged in direct marketing.
For the full story about these new regulations for direct marketing and food safety, please see the new issue of Small Farm News published by Shermain Hardesty, Leader of the UC Small Farm Program.
