Hi-I am right now in the process of arranging a "Group GAP" class for the growers in our farmers cooperative, which includes Amish. We have been told that some of our wholesale accounts will require some kind of GAP assurance.  I would be interested in any ongoing discussion about it.  Lori Sands

Speaking figuratively, I'd be curious to know who on the list plans to go through GAP certification within the next year.  We're considering it even though veggie production isn't a big part of our operation and/or our plans.  I had ruled it out prior to now but with FSMA, it seems like they're going to get us one way or another.  And with the Group GAP certification option, I'm thinking it would be nice to buddy up with other folks in our area who are planning to get certified so that we don't have to go it alone.  But there's 1001 questions to be answered.  I'd be curious who else might be taking this step on the list, and if the details/questions regarding that certification would be welcome fodder for the list.




Not going there because I want to, per se.  Rather, I'm following the logic of "keep your friends close, and your regulators closer.........."
