The Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) in partnership with University of Maryland (UMD) and Southern Maryland Agricultural Development Commission will conduct a training workshop for poultry and rabbit slaughter and processing on Friday, April 11 at the Calvert County Economic Development building meeting room at: 205 Main Street, Prince Frederick, MD 20678.
This full-day workshop is a voluntary certification program to assist small poultry and rabbit operations to meet the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene’s ‘approved source’ requirements for producers who want to become certified to sell their poultry and/or rabbits (off the farm) at farmers’ markets or to restaurants and retailers in Maryland.   
The MDA training and certification program is great opportunity for small agricultural businesses to expand into new markets and meet the increasing consumer demand for farm fresh, local products.
