What to Expect

Prior to attending this course, it is helpful (but not necessary) to have attended the Food Safety Modernization Act - Produce Grower Certification Training, or another introductory Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) course that covers farm practices and food safety risks.

This workshop will review basic concepts, but is designed as a level-two course for farmers writing a food safety plan. It is also designed for farmers who are considering, or are required, to have a third-party audit.

Participation in this workshop will leave you better prepared for third-party audits. Previous participants have finished the workshop with a started, if not mostly-completed, farm food safety plan in hand.
