Peer Certification Mentorship and Education Programs for the Newly Certified

There is often no better information resource for a newly certified farmer than a veteran organic producer. Fellow producers provide an independent, honest, and trusted information source to help newly certified farmers learn the ropes. This package provides the tools needed to help certifiers and other stakeholders implement a peer mentorship program for certified producers in their community. The package contains sample intake forms, mentor agreements, and evaluations to jumpstart a successful mentorship program and measure progress.

Resource development: Created in partnership with Northeast Organic Farming Association – Vermont (NOFA-VT)
