Organic Farming 101 in Virginia

by Staff on October 1, 2014

Organic Foods in VirginiaThe US Dep’t of Agriculture has published a very convenient site for farmers who’re looking for resources and advice for successful organic farming.  The link will take you to other really helpful information about how to become Certified Organic (did you know that you could get reimbursed for some of your certification costs?) … as well as information on the definitions and standards for certification, help with setting up good conservation practices or crop insurance, among other things.

And for those of you who actually attended every class in school and never resorted to the Cliffs Notes … here’s a link to the complete Code of Regulations for Organic Foods.  Happy reading!  There will be a quiz on Monday.
