NOP / Organic Certification

"Organic certification verifies that your farm or handling facility complies with the USDA organic regulations. Once you are certified, you can sell, label, and represent your products as organic. These regulations describe the specific standards required for you to use the word 'organic' or the USDA organic seal on food, feed, or fiber products.” - USDA
