Good Agricultural Practices/Good Handling Practices (GAP/GHP)

A two track training on food safety practices that reduce the risk of foodborne illness when growing fruits and vegetables.  The first session (3 hours) is for those farmers who only grow produce while the second track expands the principles learned in track one to include further processing such as washing and packing of the product for sale.

The class, taught by a team of Extension Agriculture and Family and Consumer Science Educators, offers farmers a Delaware Department of Agriculture certificate for completion of food safety training.
