Oregon Tilth Certified Organic
2016: Year of the Organic Certification!
We are now Oregon Tilth Certified Organic! Certifying all our land, animals, and vegetables has been a long-held dream of ours. While our farming practices have used only organic inputs and feeds in the past, organic certification supports the organic movement and is a crucial element in the transition to an organic agricultural system. A growing, quantifiable number of certified organic farms is a strong indicator that organic production is viable: that farmers are achieving it, that consumers want it, and that organic must be supported with research, farm support payments, insurance, and cost share funds.
Oregon Tilth is a leading nonprofit certifier, educator and advocate for organic agriculture and products since 1974. Their mission is to make our food system and agriculture biologically sound and socially equitable. Oregon Tilth has led the way in organic agriculture and sustainable production methods, playing a leading role in the formation of a federal USDA National Organic Program and expanding organic sustainability beyond agriculture to textiles and other products. They believe in a holistic approach to food production and encourage producers to create organic systems that improve soils, preserve natural resources and minimize public health risks. Their work with processors, handlers and marketers of organic products ensures the organic integrity of products from the farm to the table, and everything in between.
