Food Safety

Food Safety is our Priority!

  • FFHQ produce is washed and sanitized when appropriate in accordance with the Family Farmed publication: Wholesale Success: A Farmer’s Guide to Food Safety, Selling, Postharverst Handling, and Packaging Produce, which is developed in collaboration with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Risk Management Agency.  Produce is packaged in sanitized recyclable boxes.
  • In general, FFHQ Farms follow the Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and Good Handling Practices (GHP) described in the USDA Agricultural Marketing Services website. FFHQ farms participate in food safety and post-harvest handling training courses.
  • We internally audit every farm each year for food safety compliance.
  • Our cooperative carries $2 million in liability insurance.
