Organic Cost Share Program

The program provides up to $750 or 75 percent of applicable certification costs to USDA certified organic producers and processors. Operations which have both a production and processing component can apply as producers. Examples:

  • A dairy operation is a producer
  • A dairy operation that bottles their own milk is still a producer
  • An operation that only bottles milk they purchase is a processor 

Applicable costs must be incurred for certification during the "cost share year" which coincides with the federal fiscal year.  Applications are typically due November each calendar year.
