Have you ever struggled to find information on or someone to talk to about a USDA program?
The USDA has developed a guide to organic and organic-related programs, and is implementing a department-wide training program to improve service to current and prospective organic stakeholders.
USDA has also developed a toolkit that helps farmers and businesses answer the question, "is organic an option for me?"
Organic Literary Initiative
In response to requests from the organic community, USDA developed these materials to help connect current and prospective organic operations with appropriate USDA resources.
Through this effort, USDA staff will be better equipped to help current and prospective organic customers:
Obtain technical and financial assistance.
- Insure crops and livestock.
- Access and fund research.
- Secure loans.
- Develop conservation practices.
- Find current organic price information.
- Access local, regional, and international markets.
We hope you will use and share these materials widely, helping current and prospective organic operations fully benefit from USDA services.
