Organic Certifying Agencies

Hi Everyone,

Does anyone have advice or wisdom on choosing an organic certifying agency? I'm just getting a party started here in Boone, NC, for an apple orchard not yet planted.

Thanks,
Rob

And/or, are you going the certified OG route?

I have a certified organic orchard and I know a lot about this subject since I work part time as an organic inspector. Your choice depends somewhat on what you are planning to do with your fruit. For instance if you are exporting or selling to a processor you want a certifier with good recognition in other countries. If you are staying local, I would look for a certifier close to you. I think QCS (Quality Certification Services) might have an office in North Carolina and they are reputable. If you have a more specific question about it I might be able to help.

In Ontario, we are certified by Pro Cert and in Quebec we are certified by both pro Cert and Ecocert.
