Record keeping is a key component of organic certification for farmers, yet farmers commonly cite the necessity to keep records as a barrier to going organic. In this day long workshop, participants will learn different tools and techniques to maintain efficient records, providing benefit to both the organic certifier and overall farm management.

Record Keeping for Organic Farming workshop is geared towards both conventional farmers wanting to learn more about organic certification as well as organic farmers wanting to improve this aspect of their farm management. Specific information for crops, livestock and fruit/vegetable producers will be covered.
