The Food Safety Modernization Act and the Produce Safety Rule have been finalized and are federal law. The Montana Department of Agriculture will be providing outreach, education and technical assistance to prepare produce growers for these new food safety laws.
Please complete the following Inventory Form with some basic information about your produce operation. This information will enable the Department to align resources with areas of need. Completing this form also helps the Department identify farms eligible for exemptions.
Note: This inventory is only required for farms growing produce, such as apple orchards or diversified vegetable farms. Certain types of farms are also exempt from the rule. If you are unsure whether the Produce Safety Rule applies to your operation, use our online Exemption Decision Tool.
For any additional questions or to request assistance completing the form, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
