PITTSBORO, N.C. — Whether you are selling direct to consumers, have a pick your own (PYO), or sell through wholesale, this first session will include food safety best practices for all markets. We will provide strategies for safe picking, handling, storage, and transportation of your product.
Have you been asked for GAP certification? We will touch on that too! A quick overview of GAP will answer basic questions regarding costs, the certification process, and what a successful audit might do to help your market access.
