Hi, my name is Connie Landis Fisk. Welcome to my blog!
I am originally from Central Oregon and received my BS in Nutrition and Food Management and my MS in Food Science & Technology and Horticulture from Oregon State University (Go Beavers!). For five and a half years I held a statewide Extension position working with muscadine grape growers in North Carolina where I completed my PhD in Horticultural Science (Go Wolfpack!). I have experience in fruit and vegetable, dairy, and meat production and processing, quality assurance, catering, and teaching, both face-to-face and online.
In my current position as the Northwest Regional Extension Associate for the Produce Safety Alliance, I serve as a resource for produce growers in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and Alaska and support the university researchers, Extension educators, and government agencies tasked with providing training and resources to help them understand how to comply with the Food Safety Modernization Act Produce Safety Rule.
On this blog I share recommendations for small-scale food production, success stories from local producers, musings on the food system and food policy issues, and even some of my favorite recipes to use up the season’s bounty.
Follow me on Twitter (https://twitter.com/connie_fisk) where I tweet about fruit & vegetable production, food safety, and microbiology.
Thanks for stopping by!
