Are you a farmer looking to start making value-added products as a way to diversify your income streams?
If so, are you thinking about making canned, shelf-stable products such as salsa or tomato sauce? Depending on your product, you may need to attend Acidified Foods Manufacturing School, to have the necessary food safety certificates to create the product. CAFF currently has $400 scholarships available to pay for farmers to attend this virtual course and get the needed certificate.
The scholarships are available until the funding is used up. Apply ASAP here, if you’re interested.
