Say NO to setting up an Organic Check-Off
There are a lot of things organic farmers need to know about the Organic Check-Off program which the Organic Trade Association (OTA) is very actively lobbying Congress to pass. It is critical that all organic farmers understand how this will impact them and immediately express their views on this important issue.
As individuals, you can sign this petition that says that you DO NOT support the establishment of an Organic Check-off program but you DO support a permanent exemption which would exempt all organically certified operations from paying into federal mandatory check-off programs. Please go to: https://nofa.wufoo.com/forms/online-petition-organic-checkoff-program/
As an organization, you can sign on to a letter that states your organization is opposed to the creation of an Organic Check-off Program but supports exempting all organically certified operations from paying into any of the existing check-off programs. To sign on to the letter please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with NO to an Organic Check-Off in the subject line.
