Certify Organic - New USDA Cost Share Program
Mason County Farmers,
Are you considering organic certification? Now is a great time to act on your interest because the USDA is offering organic cost share programs which will reimburse individual organic operators up to 75% of their 2014 certification costs up to a maximum of $750 per category of certification. WA State has been allocated over $800,000 for this program (3rd highest funding level in the nation), but the offer is set to end September 31, 2014, so you need to act quickly! More on the cost share program. Get in touch with the WA State Dept. of Agriculture Organic Food Program immediately to explore this cost share program.
