  1. The opportunity to request an On-Farm Readiness Review
  2. Early registration for Produce Safety Alliance Grower Trainings in Vermont
  3. Eligibility for Vermont Produce Safety Improvement Grants to help pay for on-farm improvements

Looking for the University of Vermont Produce Safety Portal?  

If you are a vegetable producer, retailer, distributor, service provider, or regulator, you will find information on the Produce Safety Portal to help you better understand produce safety issues. The University of Vermont Extension Produce Portal is a one-stop site for you to access essential information as well as contribute to a curated repository of produce safety and related resources.

By searching the Portal, you can identify useful materials and follow links directly to the sources of that information. The resources in the Portal (e.g. fact sheets, case studies, photos, and much more) have been contributed by many different people in the farming community in Vermont and beyond. Resources can be added by approved account members and are reviewed by site moderators.
