The passing of House Bill 608 allows producers to sell poultry and rabbits (up to 1000 each) directly to restaurants in New Hampshire without USDA inspection. The bill includes a training requirement that must be met by the producer pertaining to food safety.
UNH Cooperative Extension’s previous training workshop quickly filled to capacity. To accommodate everyone interested, an identical workshop for poultry and rabbit producers is being offered on Saturday, May 30 from 9 to 2:30 p.m. in Boscawen. “Food Safety for Poultry and Rabbit Producers” fulfills the HB 608 training requirement and will help producers develop a working plan for providing safe meat products for this new market. The cost of the workshop is $50 per person, including lunch, and $25 for an additional attendee from the same farm.
Workshop pre-registration is necessary and can be completed online by May 27 at bit.ly/FSPRPWorkshop. Directions to the workshop will be provided upon registration.
