Hey there everyone! 

I just wanted to share a few resources for you on the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). 

So you may already know that there are new proposed rules for FSMA. These can affect all producers, so take a look at the following resources to learn more about how they might affect you and how you can get involved in making sure congress hears from the small, beginning, and family producers and on-farm processors! 

I'm not the best person to answer questions about FSMA - but if you have some and happen to send them my way, I'll do my best to find some answers.
