USDA Organic has Lost its Way
We refuse to let Big Ag define what it means to be 'organic'. We grow food in the soil, not hydroponically. We raise livestock on pasture, not in confinement. As we lose trust in the USDA, Real Organic remains exactly what organic was always intended to be.
A Higher Standard for Organic Farming
As economic and political forces erode the meaning of the term “certified organic”, we connect and grow the community of farmers and eaters who care about real organic farming. The Real Organic Project was started by many of the same pioneers who launched the organic movement. Since our formation in 2018, 1,100 farms have joined our national farmer-led certification program. We are young and old, beginning and life-long farmers, all committed to shared real organic principles.
