Nebraska Exploring Organic Production Guide

Farm Business and Marketing

The process to become certified organic usually takes three years. During this time, a producer will work with a certifying agency to meet all the requirements to become certified under the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP).

During the transition time period, the land that is being certified will be operated as organic, including following all the USDA rules for organic production. The certifying agency will audit and verify that accepted production methods are being followed. After meeting all criteria for production practices, the land can be certified as organic. The producer will continue to work with a certifying agency to maintain their certified status through annual audits.

The certifying agency that you choose to work with is up to you, and they do not have to be headquartered in Nebraska. For a full list of certifying agencies go to the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) web page: www.ams.usda.gov and search for “national organic program.” Then click on the “certifiers” link.

There are two certifying agencies located in Nebraska:
