Field-to-market workshop set
The OSU Extension Service will hold "The Essentials Field-to-Market" workshop on Saturday, March 9, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the North Willamette Research & Extension Center, 15210 NE Miley Road, in Aurora.
The Oregon Farm-Direct Law allows small farmers to create and sell certain low-risk products from the produce that they grow - without a license - providing a supplemental income opportunity, making use of excess produce, and adding variety to their offerings. It is a great opportunity for small farmers or food entrepreneurs to produce a farm-direct, value-added product, such as jelly, fruit syrup, salsa, etc.… that can be sold at farmers markets.
The cost is $25 per person, $40 for a couple. Registration includes snacks and a flash drive loaded with resources.
