Event Details

GAP Certification Training

As farmers in Virginia work to proactively address on-farm food safety, Virginia Cooperative Extension has developed training programs, a comprehensive Plan of Action Manual for growers, and networks of extension agents that are successfully helping farmers through the process.

For this workshop, Local Food Hub’s Educational Farm at Maple Hill will serve as a training ground for a mock audit to help illustrate simple strategies and practices that can be put in place to ensure that your farm is following Good Agricultural Practices. Extension agents will discuss food safety risks for small farms as well as how to prepare for GAP certification and develop your farm specific Plan of Action Manuals.bThe day will round out with a panel discussion and the opportunity to coordinate follow-up small group sessions to work through your manuals in more depth.

Thanks to grant funding secured by VCE, Plan of Action Manuals ($50 value) will be available free to participants.  Space is limited so sign up early!

Topics:

  • Food safety risks for small farms
  • Farm walk-thru (mock audit)
  • Preparing for GAP certification – navigating the Plan of Action manual
  • Panel Discussion
