Coastal Sunbelt Produce - 8704 Bollman Place, Savage, MD 20763
Future Harvest CASA Members - $5; Maryland Farm Bureau Members - $5; Nonmembers - $15

Spend a day at the Coastal Sunbelt Produce facility for a field day and tour that will include a look at how Coastal Sunbelt manages the distribution of products from our local farms to the end users, within the shortest time of harvest. See and learn about the warehouse storage facilities, the coolers and other temperature zones, produce samples, sizing, pricing, the importance of packaging, handling guidelines, the supply chain, the customer segments served, how to shorten the distribution time, and which sustainable methods work best. Hear about the separate requirements for organic produce. A local producer who sells to distributors will also share first-hand experiences. Finally, meet Coastal Sunbelt's chef who will not only prepare us a locally sourced lunch but will also discuss product development and other culinary uses of our homegrown produce. Presented in partnership with Maryland Farm Bureau
