This & That
Hi everyone! What a beautiful start to November today has been! Hope you all have been able to enjoy it.
I have just a few quick things to share. We now have a total of 1,817 registered cottage food producers in Minnesota. We’ve come a long way since the law passed and it’s only going to get better. There are so many of you who have told me of the successful summer you’ve had and I couldn’t be more happy and excited for you all!
Re-registrations forms for 2017 will be sent out from the Department of Agriculture soon. Be sure to fill them out and send them back immediately. Remember your 2016 registration ends on Dec. 31st, 2016.
Today was the last Food Safety class given by Suzanne Driessen. She is in the process of putting together classes for 2017. If you want to attend a class in a specific area please let Suzanne know: firstname.lastname@example.org. Folks please remember, food safety classes are required by the Dept. Of Agriculture as part of our registration process. There is a short class for Tier 1 producers and a little bit longer class for Tier 2 producers. But the classes are very interesting and only have to be renewed every three years.
