This is food or agricultural practices that comply with the standards of organic farming. These standards may vary worldwide, but generally speaking, organic means that pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemical additives/amendments are restricted, in the aim of protecting ecological biodiversity. For a farm or a food to be certified organic in the US, they need to obtain a special certification from the governmental food safety authority, the National Organic Program of the USDA. Organic foods are increasingly demanded by the consumer, from a concern for personal health and for the ecosystem. There are many ways to become Certified Organic, but the most common one for the US is the government agency USDA Organic. Organic certification requires that farmers and handlers document their processes and get inspected every year. Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible.UD
The term “grass fed” (as opposed to grain fed) refers to meat obtained from cows that were raised on a diet of grass and other forage, such as clover; situated in pasture and, when fresh grass is unavailable, hay. This helps to denote the difference between livestock that has been raised in feedlots and generally fed a diet of soy and corn, versus animals that have had access to their natural feeding environment in pasture, which contains grasses, wildflowers, and herbs. This term overlaps with “pasture-raised” and will usually be seen together. Grass-fed beef is also believed to taste better, and be better for the environment, too. There are several organizations that offer a certification for Grass Fed, such as the American Grassfed Association, Certified Grassfed by A Greener World, and Pasture for Life, to name a few.
Some of the businesses listed in our directory will be using the same principles as Certified Naturally Grown farmers, but without the certification. Certifications can often be expensive and time consuming for most farmers to participate in, and therefore we feel it is important to acknowledge those who practice good land stewardship, without certification.
