Safely Selling Local Food at Farm Stands and CSAs during COVID-19
When: Wednesday, May 6, 12-1 PM
Where: You can call in by phone or connect through your computer on Zoom. Register here.
Demand for local food is surging, and many Vermont farms are heeding the call to feed their communities. They have adapted time and again to the evolving COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety of their food, customers, employees, and farms. They’re even selling products from other farms, along with their own meat, dairy, produce, maple, etc.
Join us online or by phone for a discussion about COVID-19 best practices for farmstands and CSA models. We’ll give an update on the latest guidelines – whatever they are on May 6.
