We’re excited to report that the farm bill has been passed in the House and Senate, and was signed into law by President Obama on Friday. The good news for small organic farms like ours, is that funding for organic certification cost share is reinstated in all 50 states. The action helps make organic certification more affordable for everyone, and will help our budget considerably.
Snowdrift Farms has been organically certified by the Idaho State Department of Agriculture since 2009. Last year we had to suck up the full sticker price for organic certification–which was a real hit,, as it’s a major expense for a small farm.
