Sourcing certified organic seed and plant stock

As a certified organic farm, you are required to use organically grown seeds and planting stock if the variety — or its equivalent — is available.

How do I find certified organic seeds?

In addition to reviewing your seed suppliers, several seed search engines can help find available seed varieties. The AOSCA Organic Seed Finder, Organic Seed Alliance, OMRI Seed Search, and Pick-a-Carrot Seed Search are good places to start.

Do I always need to use organic seedlings?

Yes, annual seedlings must be grown organically. The only approved use of non-organic annual seedlings is for re-planting in cases of natural disasters as recognized by the USDA.

What about seeds for sprouting?

Organic seeds must be used for edible sprouts without exception.
