Debate: Is Organic Certification Right for you?
Increasingly, young people are going into local farming without getting certified organic. Is “local” supplanting “organic”? Is this a good thing? Is there a special enduring value to organic certification? Has it strayed from its original goals? Two active certified farmers, and two uncertified farmers who use organic methods, will debate the question: “Is organic certification right for you?”
