Good Agricultural Practices (GAP)

The Desert Farming Initiative is GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) Certified!

The USDA and Nevada Department of Agriculture evaluate farms on an annual basis for certification based on criteria in the GAP audit checklist.

The DFI Food Safety Plan is intended to meet GAP and FSMA requirements and includes good handling practices, operating procedures and a record keeping system. Results of our latest GAP Audit (2017) are available to the public.
