As more produce buyers require food safety assurances, many growers are documenting their food safety practices and considering whether certification is a good fit for them. Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) is a voluntary set of food-safety guidelines designed to help produce growers improve food safety on the farm. Successful completion of a WSDA GAP audit will earn the farm a USDA GAP certification. Learn about Bridging the GAPs, a new project of WSDA to work with auditors and growers to identify best practices for food safety efforts on small and diversified farms. Join Cedarville Farm, and a group of farmers, food buyers and GAP Auditors from WSDA, as they discuss good agricultural practices for small and diversified farms, and why food safety planning matters to them.
