Organic

OrganicThe USDA organic regulations recognize four categories of organic products: crops, defined as a plant that is grown to be harvested as food, livestock feed, fiber, or used to add nutrients to the field. Livestock defined as animals that can be used for food or in the production of food, fiber, or feed. Processed Products defined as items that have been handled and packaged (i.e. chopped carrots) or combined, processed, and packaged (i.e. soup). Wild Crops defined as plants from a growing site that is not cultivated. In the Northern New York Region there are 89 organic dairy farms. Please see the links below for more information on organic operations and certifications and should you have further questions, contact a member of the regional team.
