Whether you are new to food safety concepts, would like to learn more about how the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) will impact you, or are thinking about having a third party audit, the NMFMA's Food Safety Training program will help you prepare. The NMFMA currently offers the following trainings:

Tier 1 Workshops:

Farmers will leave the training with a basic understanding of what food safety Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) look like on a farm, and prepare to develop a Risk-Based Food Safety Plan, if desired. 

Tier 2 Workshops: 

Members of the NMFMA can organize all Tier 2 Workshop videos here. Non-members can view individual videos below:


Part 1: Land Use

Part 2: Critters 

Part 3: Agricultural Water

Part 4: Workers

Part 5: Sanitation

Part 6: Traceability

This workshop walks farmers through the process of completing a Risk-Based Food Safety Plan. The plan will be customized to each farmer and their unique farm; it will act as each farms' operations manual to ensure continuous improvement and implementation of food safety practices. The completed Risk-Based Food Safety Plan will be benchmarked to the Harmonized GAP standard, preparing farmers for future Tier 3 training.

Tier 3 Workshops:

This is a one-on-one training for farmers wishing to complete GAP certification.
