WSDA Office of Compliance and Outreach

The WA legislature eliminated funding for the Small Farm & Direct Marketing Program at the Washington State Dept. of Agriculture as of June 30, 2011. The knowledgeable staff from that program have been retained within the agency, now serving as Education & Outreach Specialists for the Office of Compliance and Outreach in the Food Safety and Consumer Services Division. We continue to strive to assist farmers and food processors with regulatory issues as well as education around food safety and compliance. Thanks to federal grant funding we are also active in Farm to School and Value-added Processing workshops. www.agr.wa.gov;
