Introduction to Organic Certification

FREE Introduction to Organic Certification Webinar

(Available on Tuesday, December 17, 2019)

Organic crops are in high demand from health-conscious consumers.  Organic certification is quite obtainable for aquaponic, hydroponic and conventional farms. In rapidly increasing numbers, grocers, pack houses, processors and crop brokers require food safety and organic certification for the crops they sell.   Are you already missing sales?

Discover what you need to know to pursue organic certification.  This free, recorded webinar will cover the following:

  • The Jump Start.  We build your Organic Systems Plan to guide your activities throughout the year.  Happily, this process also teaches you the rules.
  • Daily Logs and Input Tracking.  Know which logs apply plus when and how to use them.  Learn about approved products. Those products are called “inputs” and will include seeds, nutrients and other items.
  • Risk Analysis is done for your processes. We do this tough job together, right in the webinar along with the management plans that go with each one.
  • Everything Else. Harvest tracking, detailed farm and paperwork checklists. A Worker-Training Program and testing requirements.  Signs around the farm, knowledge and relief.
  • Ongoing Support.  Every Farm Plan client, whether through a custom-designed program, webinar, workshop or Do-It-Yourself system comes with email support for that crop year.
