Thank you for participating in this important survey of current and future farmers of certified organic farms.
Organic farmers may face unique challenges in meeting both National Organic Program standards and third-party food safety requirements.
With USDA support, the University of Rhode Island and The Organic Center have assembled a diverse team of researchers, organizations, and farmers to better understand this challenge area.
Our goal is to identify the best opportunities for developing cost-effective and organic-compliant tools that will help organic farmers with food safety risks and third-party certification
