Penny Packer Farm utilizes a post-harvest handling method adaptable by most any sized farm and they have several years’ experience using a CSA to market their extensive mix of produce. You may be interested in how they grade, wash, pack and distribute their weekly farm production. We will also learn about the challenges and opportunities of maintaining and growing a customer base.
