Virginia Cooperative Extension strongly recommends that all hop growers develop an on-farm food safety plan. Hops are a food product. A good food safety plan will ensure that you assess risks at pre-plant, production, harvest, and post-harvest stages; monitor practices to mitigate those risks; take corrective actions when practices are not effective at mitigating risks or something unexpected occurs; and keep good records of your practices.
