Title: TO CERTIFY OR NOT TO CERTIFY: THE PERSPECTIVE OF SMALL-SCALE ORGANIC FARMERS
Body:

Local + organic -  A win-win situation for growers, consumers and the environment.

Small-scale organic farmers represent the face of the Canadian organic industry—at the farmers’ market, CSA drop-off and at the restaurant back door. Many of these farmers, however, are not certified organic.

 

The Working Group on Small Scale Organic Certification has drafted two organic certification models that aim to be attainable for a small-scale producer focusing mainly on direct sales (farm-gate, CSA, farmer’s market, etc.): the Peer Certification Model and the Organic Affidavit model. 

 

What do you perceive to be the strengths and/or weaknesses of these models? Which would be more appropriate for your farm?  Should either model include random third-party inspections—and if so, to what extent?

Share your perspective on OFC's Blog!
