On-Farm Workshop Fresh Ideas for Your Wash & Packhouse

April 27, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us at Taproot Farm to see how their newly designed wash and packhouse helps them serve their 600-member CSA.

Taproot Farm is a 50-acre diversified vegetable operation in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Their packhouse accommodates the washing, grading, and packing of approximately 50 pallets of produce per week for their CSA, wholesale, and farmers market customers. Farmer George Brittenburg will share how Taproot’s new wash pack design enables them move a high volume of diverse products, quickly and efficiently while maintaining quality and traceability. We’ll also discuss the fundamental principles of designing a wash and pack station that complies with food safety standards, is ergonomic for worker comfort and safety, and will improve your bottom line. Farm food safety educator Jeff Stolzfus will be on hand to highlight important safety elements and common concerns.

Support for this workshop is provided by a Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Block Grant.
