Introduction to USDA's Good Agricultural Practices (GAP)

GW Carver Agricultural Center
9432 James Madison Hwy • Rapidan, VA
Are you preparing to meet the new Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Produce Safety rule standards? Have you heard about Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs)? Maybe you’ve heard that they can get buyers to notice your products and improve your access to the marketplace—but you need more information to know if it can work for you.
Learn about requirements for USDA GAP certification, plan and prepare for a GAP audit, and get important information about what you can do to implement food-safety measures on your farm.
