Agritourism Workshop

These workshops explore human, animal, and environmental health issues at agritourism events and operations, including apple orchards, pumpkin patches, petting zoos, and working farms that host the public. Topics includes best practices for public animal contact and food licensing and handling requirements. Workshops are co-hosted by the Minnesota Department of Health Zoonotic Diseases Unit and Environmental Health Division, and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture. Agenda topics include food vendor licensing, preparing food safely, and best practices for reducing the risk of disease spread when the public interacts with livestock and poultry. There is time built in for attendees to “ask an expert” after each topic area is covered. These workshops are intended for anyone who has the public out to their farm or intends to do so in the future.
