Tangerini's Farm is a 65-acre farm located in Millis, Ma. Produce is marketed through a 500 member CSA, an on-site farm stand, farmers' markets, food coops and wholesale buyers. Over the last two years, with support from an MDAR Food Safety Improvement Program grant, they have developed a washing and packing area to prepare all their produce. They will demonstrate the use of many pieces of equipment including wash tanks, barrel washer, bunch washer, onion topper and a conveyer system. They will discuss the flow of produce in the packing area as well as how it is stored. They will also show off some new investments and innovations in their cultivation equipment.
Lisa McKeag, from the UMass Vegetable Program, will also provide an update on the roll-out of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in Massachusetts.
