Organic certification is recommended if you are growing organic produce for sale. Certification shows your
customers that you are genuinely organic and helps to ensure you are following accepted organic principles.
Far North Organic Growers offer two kinds of certification:
- Local FNOG Certification
$90 + Auditors fees + Travel costs
- OrganicFarmNZ Certification – Nationally recognised
$225 + Auditors fees + Travel costs
Certification lasts for one year and must be renewed to maintain certified status. FNOG Membership is included with certification.
Members who are certified under the OFNZ or FNOG umbrella,
have to work in accordance with our standards which
are the same as the production standards used and worked
out by Bio-Gro
New Zealand. More about these standards can be found
on their web site.
If you would like advice or more information on becoming certified, please contact our Certification Manager or one of our Auditors:
