Farm Food Safety Training with GAPs
June 6 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00am on Thursday, repeating until June 13, 2019
Join Cornell Cooperative Extension of Allegany County, the Cornell Vegetable Team, and New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets for a training on understanding GAPs and how GAPs impact produce safety. Learn about Harmonized & Basic GAPs and how it applies to your farm operation. Day 2 – Begin writing a food safety plan that compiles with a USDA GAP Audit for your farm.
All produce farms are encouraged to complete GAPs training. Understanding Farm Food Safety regardless of buyers’ demands is the right thing for growers to do. A Farm Food Safety Plan helps growers follow Good Agricultural Practice whether or not a farm chooses to become certified.
