GAP, or Good Agriculture Practices Training, is being offered at the Butler County Extension Office on Tuesday, November 20th at 9:00 a.m. GAP training educates food producers about safe food production and handling procedures. The program will last approximately 3 hours and there is no fee to participate. Farms must be GAP certified to offer samples at farmer's markets of certified roadside stands. Farms must also be GAP certified to sell to local school food service programs. The GAP training is consistent across the state. Farmers may participate wherever they choose.
