The CAFF Food Safety Partner Farm Program is an in-depth partnership between farms in California and CAFF. The CAFF Food Safety staff work one-on-one with the Partner Farm to guide them through updating their food safety practices on their farm to achieve whatever food safety goal(s) decided on at the start of the partnership. We recognize that on-farm food safety for small farms looks very at every single farm given the unique risks and circumstances present at every farm. We provide this type of technical assistance to help address the need we’ve heard from growers that they’d like more guided assistance in updating their farm’s food safety program.

Coastal Roots Farm
Coastal Roots Farm is a nonprofit Jewish community farm and education center. We cultivate healthy, connected communities by integrating sustainable agriculture, food justice, and ancient Jewish wisdom. On the Farm, we prioritize techniques that build and maintain soil and sequester carbon, not just to grow great food but also to contribute toward a solution for the larger problem of climate change. Much of our farming approach is consistent with practices established by the first peoples of this land.
Central to the Farm’s work is our commitment to reducing community hunger by growing and distributing fresh, organic produce and eggs to those most marginalized, inspiring environmental stewardship through high-quality farm-based educational programming for youth and adults, and fostering a healthier, more vibrant, and inclusive community and a more sustainable future for our region.
