In addition, she will highlight different avenues for integrating value-added processing into a farming operation, including processing products in a farm kitchen, using a commercial kitchen, or hiring a co-packer. Finally, Nichols will touch on special considerations related to shared commercial kitchens, CSA boxes, as well as simple on-farm processing. In the second half of the webinar, gain the on-farm perspective from Rebecca Courchesne (a.k.a. Chef Becky) from Frog Hollow Farm.
