Farmer Food Safety Plan Resources

  • Familyfarmed.org: The free On-Farm Food Safety tool walks people through creating a personalized on-farm food safety plan, and become food safety certified. Based on harmonized GAP standards, this tool utilizes a number of decision trees that help you assess and address areas of food safety risk that are unique to your operation. 
  • The University of Minnesota: On-Farm Gaps Education Program provides a word document template that users can download free and modify to write a food safety plant based on their farm’s needs and practices. 
  • GAP Audit Checklist: Some farmers that are going to go get a GAP audit use the GAP audit checklist as a guide to write a food safety plan. 
  • Penn State: GAP template, checklists, and logs  can make writing a food safety plan easier by taking it step by step. Policies and procedures provided are based on the USDA GAP audit standards.
