Johnston County Center Fresh Produce Good Agricultural Practices Workshop Series - Part 1 Wed Sep 3, 2014 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM Where:
NC Cooperative Extension 801 S Walker St, Burgaw, NC 28425, USA
— 23 hours away

Working in partnership, North Carolina State University, North Carolina Cooperative Extension, the Center for Environmental Farming Systems - NC Growing Together Projects (CEFS/NCGT), Carolina Farm Stewartship Association (CFSA) and Feast Down East will be offering workshops aimed at providing farmers with the tools to reduce food safety risks and meet market requirements.

This two-part Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) workshop series will address how farmers of all sizes can achieve USDA GAPs certification, deliver information on principles of fresh produce safety and perform on-farm hazard assessments, as well as provide assistance with creating fresh produce food safety plan.

The first workshop, Principles of Fresh Produce Safety and Navigating the USDA GAP Audit, will combine classroom and on-farm instruction to provide producers with the tools needed to identify potential food safety concerns, as well as strategies to minimize potential contamination. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance that fulfills a portion of the eligibility requirements to receive up to $600 in GAPs Cost Share assistance form CFSA.

The second workshop, Fresh Produce Safety Program and Plan Development, conducted on participants own computers, will provide direct assistance to producers in completing a fresh produce safety plan. Attendees will leave this session with a well-developed working draft of their specific food safety plan, which becomes the framework for an audit, and can be used to demonstrate individual farm risk-reduction steps. Completion of the first workshop is a prerequisite and basic computer knowledge is recommended in order to receive the maximum benefit from this session.

Workshop participants will: 1) Receive a Certificate of Attendance for GAPs training needed for GAPs certification; 2) Be eligible to receive up to $600 in GAPs Certification Cost Share; 3) Be eligible for one-on-one Mock Audits; and 4) Receive Template and personalized classroom guidance.
