Young Farmer Guidebook

This guidebook and the accompanying online resource library created by National Young Farmers Coalition, National Farmers Union, and Jeni Lamb Rogers are not exhaustive instructions on how to legally comply with the Produce Safety Rule, but are meant to equip growers with the basics to improve food safety on their farm: training agendas, template standard operating procedures (SOPs), specific options for wildlife management, suggestions for how to set up a washing station, and much more.

The deep dive guide is a more comprehensive, legally-focused version of the original guide for growers who need to have an inspection or want more specifics on the Produce Safety Rule requirements.

Both guides are available for free online and printed copies will be available to farmers at various Young Farmer events but if an organization is interested in receiving printed guides they can be purchased on the National Young Farmers Coalition website.
