It’s not always easy to transition to certified organic, and we don’t expect farmers to do it alone. That’s why we’ve partnered with Anheuser Busch and their Michelob ULTRA Pure Gold Contract for Change program to provide financial support during the critical phase of becoming organic. The CCOF Foundation also offers a wealth of educational opportunities through our Organic Training Institute.
Want to take your farm forward and transition to organic? Maybe you’re already practicing organic methods and needed that final incentive to get certified. Now is your chance to lessen the financial challenge of transition.
We are looking for farmers who are committed to the full three-year transition. We’ll prioritize applicants who have a plan for transition to certified organic production, or who have identified a means to develop a plan for how they will transition their farm.
If you want to make the transition to organic, you may be eligible for a $5,000 grant. Producers of all crops are eligible. Applications are open until November 27, 2020.
