  • Tuesday, December 3, 2019, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
  • Wednesday, December 4, 2019, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM

This training is geared for fresh produce farms looking to learn and implement food safety practices into their operations. If you are looking to find new markets, many buyers are requiring food safety training. Under the GAPs (Good Agricultural Practices) program this training will help prepare you for implementing food safety practices and move you forward for audit/certification through NY State Dept of Agriculture. If you are looking to sell to farm to school programs, many school districts require a training course.

The GAPs training is a 2-day program:

  • Day 1 covers the details and reasoning for food safety along with the practices that you can use for your own unique farming operation.
  • Day 2 is for those attendees who want to write a farm food safety plan. We will assist you with developing a plan that fits your needs. If you want a GAPs audit/certification, you need a farm food safety plan. A plan is a good thing to have anyway because it helps give you a road map for implementation of practices. Laptop computer will be needed for Day 2.
