New Director of Farm Programs Certification

by Rachel Witte |

CCOF Certification Services is delighted to announce that former employee April Crittenden will return to CCOF as our new director of farm programs certification. Crittenden has a long history with CCOF, having participated in nearly every aspect of the farm and quality departments, from certification specialist to senior quality and compliance supervisor. Crittenden has been committed to organic excellence at CCOF for nearly a decade, and we expect to see our farm program flourish under her leadership. Crittenden can be reached at, or at (831) 432-2263, extension 6215.

Everyone at CCOF also wants to take this opportunity to thank Amy Lamendella, Crittenden’s predecessor, for all of her work in the director of farm program certification role. Lamendella has been an important member to the CCOF team for more than 10 years. We are happy to say that Lamendella will not be leaving CCOF, but will be staying on in a supportive role to our food safety team.
