Transition to Organic Partnership Program

CT NOFA is proud to be a Core Partner in the Northeast Transition to Organic Partnership Program. This community agreement is sponsored by the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service and will continue through October of 2027. CT NOFA is currently recruiting:

  • Mentor farmers who have operated certified organic farms for at least three years that are interested in assisting mentee farmers as they transition their farms for certification.
  • Farmers looking to transition to organic: if you are operating a farm and would like the assistance of an experienced organic farmer during your transition to organic we welcome you to join our group of mentee farmers.
  • Partner organizations which wish to help grow the program
  • Technical experts who are interested in helping provide guidance on specific topics, skills, or areas of interest to farmers who are transitioning to organic methods

Winter Conference
