Organic and Certified Producer Programs

orangesThe Organic Program requires producers, handlers and processors wishing to market their commodities as organic to register with the California Department of Food and Agriculture annually in accordance with the California Organic Foods Act of 1990. A registration packet is available at the Agricultural Commissioner's office. Organic producers are subject to records inspections as well as investigations of complaints concerning non-compliances relating to this Act.

The Certified Producer Program provides oversight of all growers who sell their crop directly to consumers at farmers markets. Certification is required to sell product at any certified farmers market. The county registers certified producers for an annual fee of $25, payable at the Agricultural Commissioner's office. Registration will also include an inspection of the growing site to assure that the sellers produce the products they market.
