Produce Safety

Worker Health & Hygiene

Farm workers are the backbone of Washington agriculture, but they can also be a direct source of contamination.

Soil Amendments

Soil amendments can be a great source of nutrients, but they can also pose a food safety risk if they aren’t properly managed.

Postharvest Water

The water used for washing hands, equipment, and produce poses a risk of contamination if there is not a system to manage it.

Traceability & Transport

As your operation grows, tracing produce—from where it was grown to where it was sold—becomes increasingly important.


Documentation is a must when it comes to effectively managing your farm’s food safety program.
