Interested in transitioning to organic? Unsure about how to handle weeds, fertility, and pests? Need help navigating the certification process, finding specialized equipment or locating new markets? Looking for an experienced mentor? Let Rodale Institute help simplify the process and set you up for success.
Rodale Institute is now offering consulting services aimed at helping conventional farmers transition to an organic system. According to a joint report released by Oregon State University and Oregon Tilth, mentoring and one-on-one technical assistance were the top ways in which farmers seeking to transition wanted to receive information1. Backed by a team of researchers, farmers, educators, and experts, our crop consulting service aims to provide farmers with the information they need to start growing organic crops for market, while simultaneously improving soil health, increasing the farm’s resilience, and supporting long-term financial stability.
