"News" piece on a new national standard for certifying organic farmers established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) has been certifying growers in Maine according to its own standards for over 30 years. But beginning with the 2002 growing season, national certification is required for any producer who grosses $5,000 or more in sales of organic foods. MOFGA's Eric Sideman says a newly formed subsidiary, MOFGA Certification Services, LLC, has applied for accreditation and will serve as the primary certifying body in Maine.
