Good Agricultural Practices

GAPs, or “Good Agricultural Practices,” is a comprehensive national program intended to reduce the risk of food products carrying pathogens such as salmonella, e-coli and others which could potentially lead to food borne illnesses.

Bob has attended numerous workshops and required employee participation pertaining to this topic. In addition he completed course work from Cornell University which involved an assessment of Riverfront Berry Farm that covered risk management and development of a farm safety plan to implement practices that mitigate risk of microbial contamination.
