Attendees received a close look at slaughter procedures, food safety processes and value-added product development through a comprehensive tour of the meat processing plant.  A question and answer session with plant staff exclusive for attendees will follow the tour.

The tour is part of an educational seminar series for Maryland’s Farm-Raised Meat Producers titled, “Managing Risks in the Farm to Table Marketing Model for Small Farm Meat Producers in Maryland.” The project aims to provide participants - producers, Extension Educators, and any other Agricultural Service Providers attending - a total overview of the farm-to-table marketing model from birth to sales. This project received grant funding from the Northeast Center for Risk Management (NECRME).
