Productive Packing House


Workshop audio recordings from the 2015 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.


Presenter: Chris Blanchard, Flying Rutabaga Works
Saturday 2-b

On a vegetable farm, the magic happens in the packing house. And the best magic happens when your packing house works smoothly and provides a food-safe environment. We’ll look at the principles and practices that you can use to make the most of your current packing facility, as well as what to consider if you have the opportunity to start from scratch. Covered topics include workflow, ergonomics, storage considerations, and food safety.
