organic consultants and ag advisors

What if I have specific questions about my farming practices?

U.S. farmers and ranchers, agricultural educators, and farmer-assistance organizations can get answers about specific farming practices from ATTRA. Ask an expert.

Need outside help? CCOF cannot actively consult with our clients regarding organic certification compliance. We do offer a list of organic consultants and agriculture and pest advisors as a resource. This list includes names and contact information as well as a description of the services each consultant provides.

What resources are available to help me with my certification and recordkeeping?

Recordkeeping and organization are important aspects of certification, so we've created helpful documents and sample forms to assist our clients with these challenges. Our Organic Farm Certification Support Package and Organic Handler Certification Support Package provide collections of recordkeeping templates, designed to help you understand organic certification requirements and maintain the appropriate records.

The CCOF certification staff told me they cannot advise me on materials. Is help available?

Yes! We maintain a list of organic consultants and organic agricultural advisors who are available to assist with certification and regulatory compliance issues. We understand that choosing materials appropriate for your specific situation can be challenging. Our staff is available to verify if a specific material is compliant; however, due to NOP regulations we are not allowed to make recommendations or provide specific types of products to use.
