GAP auditor answers questions posed by local produce growers.

Penn State Extension and Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture presented a GAP Twilight Tour at the Lock Farm in Shippensburg. Two state auditors, the same ones who perform GAP certification when farms apply for it, provided a brief introduction to GAP and answered questions from those attending. A walk-through mock audit of the Lock Farm was done to illustrate the auditor’s expectations during an actual audit.
