The largest industry in Wisconsin is the food industry. The processing of raw products into food is the focus of this class. Lab activities include processing cheese and other dairy products, creation of new food products to include beverages, candy and new ways to get people to eat their fruits and veggies by making them more appealing. Products beyond food will also be explored! Some of what we work with is grown on school grounds. Field trips and guest speakers will be helpful in getting real world experience. * Offered every other year.
This class is suggested to take before the CO-OP Ag. Processing class in Arcadia.
