Join PASA Executive Director, Brian Snyder - along with Susan Beal, PASA's Agricultural Science Advisor - as they summarize some significant points in this large document and help coach farmers, business leaders and interested consumers in the art of writing concise and effective comments.

We will also discuss re-forming a cheese producers group in the state to facilitate communication, support and marketing for our cheese makers.

  • Get some help sorting through the many pages of regulations and potential rules
  • Clarify the issues
  • Discover what rules might influence your farm and farm business
  • And, most importantly, learn how to construct useful and creative comments - and how to ensure your comments are heard

In the comment process, all comments received become part of the public record. Additionally, the governing body must respond to all comments received. While the temptation is to use the comment period to vent, taking this opportunity to provide carefully worded comments containing potential solutions is a far more useful action - an action that can potentially influence the final rules.

Food Safety is everyone's responsibility. As farmers and food activists, we have the opportunity to make informed comments on the upcoming Food Safety regulations. The public comment period ends May 16, 2013.  PASA, in cooperation with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) is holding a series of regional meetings to address this complex issue.

There is no charge for this meeting and walk- ins are welcome. Taking a moment to RSVP will greatly help with our planning. RSVP HERE.
