Understanding Your Food Transportation Costs
During the past few years, the Land Stewardship Project has been working with farmers who are seeking more efficient ways of transporting to market the food they produce.
This fact sheet describes how citizens in various cities have gotten local zoning rules modified to favor community gardens, farms, farmers' markets and other forms of urban agriculture.
LSP Local Food Handling Guidelines
LSP has helped develop a series of three fact sheets that provide guidelines on legally and safely selling food into local Minnesota markets. The three fact sheets are:
• Sale of Shell Eggs to Grocery Stores & Restaurants in Minnesota.
• Sale of Meat & Poultry to Grocery Stores & Restaurants in Minnesota.
• Providing Safe, Locally-Grown Produce to Commercial Food Establishments & The General Public in Minnesota.
This is a checklist developed by LSP for a series of field days on setting up and operating greenhouses.
