Although being Assured can improve your ability to sell your produce it inevitably brings about significant levels of additional record keeping and paperwork.
Farm Assurance schemes provide certification that your produce meets higher standards of food safety and traceability than the minimum legal requirements.
The Red Tractor umbrella covers a range of Farm Assurance schemes within six sectors: beef and lamb, dairy, pigs, poultry, crops and sugar beet and fresh produce.
Inescapably, more certification means more paperwork and before you know it, all the requirements for your different schemes can start to get muddled, leading to nothing but a big pile of papers on the kitchen table and a headache!
We work closely with farm records specialists and can help you to work out exactly what records you need to be keeping as well as making sure you are set up as best as you can be, to stay compliant. Contact us today for more information.
Please see the Red Tractor Farm Assurance website for full details of the schemes and all their requirements.
