Our Publications

Connecting the Organic Community

Our quarterly magazine, Certified Organic, and our annual Organic Directory & Resource Guide help educate and connect the organic community.

     

Certified Organic covers a broad range of relevant organic topics and features CCOF certified clients’ stories and products. The Organic Directory & Resource Guide is the perfect tool for sourcing organic products. These high quality resources are free to certified clients and Supporting Members, and are available for general purchase.

In addition to our magazine and annual directory, CCOF creates other helpful publications on various topics:

Organic Marketing 101: A Guide for Getting Your Products to Market

Many different market channels exist for your organic product but not all channels will align with your goals, values, product line, and personality. Choosing the perfect market for your product can be overwhelming, so choose what market channel suits you best before you make a major investment in your cropping plan or product recipe. This tool will help you select the perfect channel for your business, with an emphasis on finding the right avenue for your end consumers.
 

Farmers' Market Best Practices Guidelines

CCOF is contacted several times each year regarding our members’ compliance with farmers’ market requirements. These concerns typically have to do with inaccurate or incorrect signage, or commingling of organic and conventional products. In response to these concerns, we created these guidelines to help vendors to reduce confusion associated with organic foods.

 
 

Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are also available for our publications.
