Have you ever been told that your favorite homemade bread or salsa is “good enough to sell?” Do you have additional fruit or vegetables from your farm or home garden that you would like to make into a commercial product? 

Food for Profit is a one-day workshop designed to help you work through the maze of local and state regulations, food safety issues and business management concepts that all must be considered in setting up a commercial food business.

The workshop costs $40 per person and includes all materials and lunch. Prepayment and registration are required.
