Dear Nahid,

We’ve been able to enjoy some rare wintery weather this year, with snow falling for three weekends in January in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Signs of spring are creeping in, though, with warmer days slowly approaching.

This means there is precious little time left to plan for the upcoming growing season! If your strategy this year includes GAP certification, we’ve prepared a list of what steps you need to take in this month’s expert tip (below). Our events calendar is also filling up with new webinars to help you all have the best growing season you can. It’s also an opportune time to apply for consultation services from our Farm Services team on a variety of topics: market access, GAP certification, high tunnels, Conservation Activity Plans, or organic certification.

Wishing everyone a great start to the early spring season!

Chloe's headshotCheers,
