Farm Food Safety and Purchasing Locally Grown Produce - What’s it all Mean?

Location: Jordon Hall, NY State Agriculture Experiment Station, 630 West North Street, Geneva, NY (Ontario County).

 

 

This is a great opportunity for locally-grown food buyers, purchasers, distributors, farm-to-school or institution programs, chefs, and healthy eating programmers to learn about the farm food safety alphabet of programs and what they might mean. Whether it’s GAPs, HGAPs, or FSMA, farm food safety will be impacting the local food movement across the state and country. What do Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs), Harmonized GAPs (HGAPs), or the federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) mean and how will these initiatives impact the locally grown food you want to purchase? Presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension through the Cornell Vegetable Program, the Lake Ontario Fruit Team, and NOFA-NY.
