Farm King County – Farm Resources at the Ready

farmkingcounty1

How many hours have you spent searching the world wide web for farm related information? Farm King County launched this past spring as an antidote to the endless internet search.  The foundation of this effort is a web-based directory of farming resources that contains information relevant to starting, operating and growing a successful farm enterprise.  This project is a collaborative effort of multiple organizations committed to expanding the local agricultural economy and while the project is named for the most populous county in the state, its resources are relevant to farm businesses beyond its border.

Find information about state soil surveys, resources about FSMA and food safety, flood and weather information, dates of upcoming events, or submit an email to receive technical assistance from professional advisors. Whatever you are looking for, make Farm King County your first stop for information, services and technical resources that can help you establish or grow your farm business.  Do you have employees who are more comfortable communicating in their language of origin? Their collection of translated written resources is extensive, especially regarding FSMA and Food Safety.  Better yet, this is a project that aims to grow and change as farmer’s needs do the same so check out the website and use the resources but also let them know what additional information you’d like to find there!
