FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Being certified organic, involves a three year transition period where no synthetic chemicals, fertilizers or genetically modified seed are added to your land. During the third year an organic inspector inspects your farm and character to ensure you are following the organic principals according to a third party certifier. If all is in order then your farm becomes 'certifed organic', our certifing body is Ecocert and we are inspected annually.
One final aspect of being 'certified organic' is the paper trail. As organic farmers, we are required to keep very detailed records of the crops we grow. If we raised animals, (which we may do in the future), they would be fed feed free of genetically modified organisms, free range, and no use of growth hormones or antibiotics are allowed.
