This three-hour webinar from Carolina Farm Stewardship Association will introduce you to USDA Harmonized GAP. Presenters will walk you through the steps for getting started and how to best prepare you and your farm for audit. The webinar breaks down the costs of certification, explains the forms that need to be submitted prior to audit, talks about food safety plans, reviews the record keeping templates, and explains the various scopes that are available. It will also talk about what your buyers may require, how to schedule your audit to maximize the crops that are on your certificate, and how to be successful using checklists and the USDA self-audit.
