SO what is "GAP" Good Agriculture Practices.
Even though we are direct marketing our produce and don't need an audit, we are working on a food safety plan to assure good hygiene and sanitation practices. It will assure our customers that we are proactively reducing the risk of microbial contamination on our produce. The new wax coated boxes
are one of the sanitation improvements we have implemented. We have repainted the restroom in the Shed and have provide it with hand soap and sanitary paper towel dispenser. Our next step is to review our packaging and produce handling system. Our Goal is to have the plan implemented before our first delivery.
