“How To…” Modules

December 18, 2015

Key steps to begin transitional farming, understanding cost-share reimbursement opportunities for certification, and correct labeling practices are just 3 of the topics covered in this package of how-to guides. These comprehensive primers tackle high-interest topics and provide an organized, easy-to-skim resource that answers common questions from producers and certifiers. Additional topics include exempt producers, the “5% rule,” biodegradable mulch, buffer zones, salt and preservatives, cleaners and sanitizers, outdoor access for poultry, and organic cost share.

Resource development: Created in partnership with Massachusetts/Baystate Organic Certifiers (MBOC)
