Chesapeake Harvest works with individual growers to their specific needs and provide support in the following ways:
  1. Conducting on-farm risk assessments – We come to your farm and walk you through a risk assessment based on your operation and practices. This will help you identify issues and where you should focus your time and resources.
  2. Helping create practical SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) – SOPs are handy tools to get all employees and volunteers on the same page. We will help you write SOPs specific to your farm.
  3. Supporting the creation of a Food Safety Plan – If you want to write a food safety plan to get better organized or get ready for a GAP certification audit, we can help. Starting with templates for SOPs, risk assessments, and records, we will co-create a customized plan for your operation with you.
  4. Consulting on requirements for food safety regulations and GAP certification – We can help clear up confusion about FSMA regulations vs. GAP certification, what you need to do to comply with regulations (the Produce Safety Rule), or which GAP certification you should apply for.
