Food Safety

  • Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) -Preventing and controlling the contamination of fresh farm produce is the key to producing wholesome, healthy products. This program helps growers to develop and implement farm food safety plans, and prepares them for GAPs certification. As a result, growers can market their products with greater confidence.

Beginning Farmer Resources

  • Beginning Farmer Resources was developed by UMass Extension to assist the growing population of beginning farmers as well as those who are currently working in the agricultural sector.  Information on this website lists resources and provides answers to questions on a wide variety of topics, from growing individual crops to business planning, labor law, zoning, regulations, marketing and diagnostic and soil test services.
