MOFGA Programs


A Brief Introduction to MOFGA's Programs

Buy Organic! MOFGA-certified organic is the best of both worlds. These products are Maine-raised and/or produced AND certified organic. Local AND organic! Local tells you where your food is produced, and organic tells you HOW it is produced.

Our Farmer Programs serve the interests of our widely diverse membership, offering agricultural services, apprenticeships, a Journeyperson program, dozens of events throughout the year, and ... more!

MOFGA Certification Services LLC was formed by the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association in 2002 to provide USDA-accredited organic certification services to Maine farmers and food processors. MOFGA began offering a certification program for organic farmers in 1972.

MOFGA’s Low Impact Forestry Program offers staff expertise and events to woodlot owners, wood harvesters and homeowners, and manages MOFGA's extensive woodlands at our Common Ground Education Center in Unity.

The Maine Heritage Orchard is a ten-acre preservation orchard located on a former gravel pit on the MOFGA grounds in Unity. 

MOFGA’s Public Policy Program informs members and the general public about important policy issues of the day concerning organic agriculture, GMO food labeling, climate change and much more, and advocates on these issues at the state and federal level.
