On Thursday, December 14, the Pennsylvania State Council of Farm Organizations (PSCFO), along with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, will be holding a community service seminar hosted by the Kutztown Grange.

The purpose of this seminar is to provide farmers and agriculture producers with information about their compliance requirements as laid out in the federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

During the seminar, a discussion regarding risk management will also take place.  The topics that will be covered regarding risk management include: food safety, crop insurance and key questions farmers should ask insurance agents in order to make sure their specific needs are met.

The event is free of charge and will take place at the Kutztown Grange Hall located at Kemp and James Streets in Kutztown from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.  A light lunch will be provided in the afternoon.

The seminar is being held with the acknowledgement and support of the Berks County state senators and state representatives.
