Spring local foods webinars offered

April 11, 2013 | 0 comments

The Local Foods Team has planned three educational webinars this spring.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) encourages growers to register now to learn more about legal issues, marketing opportunities and labeling requirements for their business.

On April 25, the Direct-to-Consumers Farm Legal Issues webinar will be offered by Rachel Armstrong of Farm Commons in Madison.

Armstrong will speak about the legal aspects of selling directly to consumers through a community supported agriculture farm, on-farm stand, local school, restaurant or grocery stores. She will cover liability concerns, sales agreements and employment laws.

The Online AgriMarketing: Planning Before You Plant webinar will be held on May 2.

Scott Skelly of Corn Mazes America in Janesville will discuss the important of planning the farms' online marketing before beginning the planting season. He will discuss how to determine the best online machinery for the farm, from websites and blogs to social media and texting.

Shannon Dorn, a DATCP technical specialist-training officer, will lead the Food Labeling and Requirementswebinar on May 9. She will cover basic label requirements for retail-packaged food products in Wisconsin. Nutritional labeling exemptions and appropriate declaration of major food allergens will also be discussed.

All webinars will begin at 10 a.m. Each webinar will allow time for participants to ask specific questions. Sample documents and resources will be provided.

There is no charge to participate in these webinars. To register, visithttp://datcp.wi.gov/Business/Buy_Local_Buy_Wisconsin/BLBW_Workshops.
