On-farm Organic Consulting

NEW PROGRAM FOR SC FARMERS ONLY

As an extension of our Conservation Activity Plan (CAP) consulting, CFSA staff are available to provide on-farm consulting to farmers about opportunities to take advantage of cost share assistance from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Organic Initiative.

The consultation involves an on-farm visit, a tour of the farm to assess natural resource concerns that can be addressed by NRCS conservation practices and a discussion of how the producer can access cost share funding to implement the identified practices on his or her farm. The farm visit normally takes about two hours and also provides an opportunity for discussion of organic production concerns on the farm. A written report will be made available to the producer outlining recommended conservation practices.
