We determine what you grow best and identify what the buyers are looking for. In partnership with the North Carolina Growing Together Project, we assist you in establishing relationships with project partners and are successful at entering new wholesale channels. We can help you find answers to what you should grow, how much you should grow and for what price you should sell you produce for. We help you establish relationships that will provide the most economical means of delivering your produce to your buyers through a consolidation center.
Every farm is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all program. We can assist you in preparing for a GAP audit including conducting a risk assessment, writing a food safety plan, scheduling your audit and being on your farm during the audit. We also provide training to you and your employees. Whatever your needs are, we will customize a program to ensure GAP certification success.
