Bridging the GAP Workshop
Small-Scale Produce Farmers!
Come learn best practices you can implement on your farm to minimize food safety risk, increase product quality, meet current regulations, and keep your customers happy and healthy.
Increasingly, small farms must navigate a complex set of produce safety regulations, market standards and buyer needs. This workshop will help farmers cut through the confusion and identify which standards apply to their farm and how to meet them.
The Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) will walk farmers through practices they would need to stay current with Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) standards and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Topics will include managing risk from humans, animals, soil, water and tools and equipment. WSDA will also provide insights and resources on how to start a food safety plan.
Come learn practical methods to manage microbial growth and contamination from the start of planting to sale!
