Organic agriculture and processing has continued to grow rapidly throughout 2015, resulting in record-breaking numbers of new operations and new requests from certified operations to add additional services, acreages, products, and more. CCOF is excited to be a part of this growth, and has responded to the additional workload by hiring more staff throughout the year.

We now have nine new Certification Service Specialists within our Farm and Handling departments, including regional staff in North Carolina (three staff members); Milwaukee, Wisconsin (1); Lincoln, Nebraska (1); Portland, Oregon (1); and State College, Pennsylvania (1); in addition to staff throughout California and at the CCOF main office in Santa Cruz. Look to meet these new staff members at chapter meetings, industry events, and on the phone!
