Registration Deadline is Today for “Selling Meat from Your Farm” Workshop in Rutland

Rutland Natural Resources Conservation District (RNRCD) is hosting:

Selling Meat From Your Farm: Understanding the Regulations

Wednesday, May 15, 2013 at the US Forest Service (conference room) at 231 North Main Street in Rutland from 9:00 a.m. to Noon.

Vermont leads the nation in direct sales of local and specialty foods production on a per capita basis. Selling value-added or processed foods can be very rewarding, but it also requires a great deal of planning and attention to the rules and regulations.

Want to take advantage of the increasing opportunities to sell meats locally and nationally? Come join the Rutland NRCD for a FREE workshop about producing, processing, and selling your farm raised meats. Randy Quenneville from the Vermont Department of Agriculture Meat Inspection Division will be the guest speaker.
