Reminder: Financial Assistance Available for Idaho’s Organic Producers

This is a reminder that NRCS has an additional funding opportunity for certified organic producers and those transitioning to organic production to implement resource conservation practices on their agricultural operations. Funds come from a section in the 2008 Farm Bill for organic farmers and those transitioning to organic.

Eligible producers include those certified through USDA’s National Organic Program, those transitioning to certified organic production, and those who meet organic standards but are exempt from certification because their gross annual organic sales are less than $5,000.

If you’re interested, contact the NRCS service office in your area.
