We help growers achieve organic certification through one-on-one technical assistance, field days, resources and more.

Supporting farmers as they transition to organic.

Through the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Transition to Organic Partnership Program (TOPP), CAFF supports transitioning and existing farmers with organic certification in California. We assist farmers with their unique organic certification needs through comprehensive technical assistance, events, resources and more. Started in spring 2023, we are beginning to build out our resources; check back here for updates as we grow.
