Good Agriculture Practices

Good Agricultural Practices (GAP)

Many schools and other institutions strongly recommend that produce is purchased from farms that are Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) certified.

The SC Department of Agriculture offers trainings and on-farm consultations to help you prepare for your audit!


“I enjoy the challenge of keeping up the standard. Once you do it and get into the feel of it, it’s part of everyday life. When I come out in the morning to pull an order, I know what process I have to go through, so I just go ahead and do it and everything works out fine.” –Al Williams, farmer in Latta, SC
