Presentation Transcript

  1. The Farm Direct Bill Scale-appropriate rules for small growers selling directly

  2. What the bill does • Clarifies which farm-direct activities require a license and which do not. Also clarifies status of farmers’ markets. • Allows low-risk processing such as drying fruits and vegetables without a processing license. • New options for growers of dried beans and grains in many forms. • Under many limits, farmers can make jams, jellies, preserves, syrups, sauerkraut, pickles and some salsas.

  3. What the bill does NOT affect • Sales to stores, restaurants or institutions or any other sales not direct to the consumer. • Commingled foods not included – hurts traceability • Regulation of meat or poultry – another bill deals with 1,000 or fewer birds sold directly and probably on farm • Low-acid foods – too risky to deregulate • Baked goods in domestic kitchens

  4. For more information about the bill www.oregonfarmersmarkets.org/mktmngr/food_safety.html OFMA web pagehosts the officialODA FrequentlyAskedQuestions
