Sales records are a final step in your audit trail. These records, combined with your harvest logs, will enable your inspector to verify that the amount of organic product you are growing and harvesting match the amount you are selling.
What records do I need to keep for sales?
You will need to maintain sales records, such as farmers’ market load lists, produce stand inventory lists, grower statements, invoices, records of deliveries to facilities (including brokered or resold products) and sales summaries from wholesalers or processors.
Are there other supporting records for documentation?
Yes, all shipping records (bills of lading, receiving logs, delivery receipts) and transactions with co-packers, including certification information.
