More Farmers than Ever Applied to CNG this Spring

Posted on April 19, 2018

Just before midnight on April 15, we received our 200th application of 2018, meeting our campaign goal within minutes of the deadline! 

We'd like to say a big thanks to everyone in our community who recommended CNG to farmers and beekeepers in their networks. It clearly made a difference, as we saw an increase of 33% over the 151 applications we had received by April 15 in 2017. 

New Applicants to Certified Naturally Grown

Producers interested in CNG certification who missed the deadline are still encouraged to apply, of course. (It's only the gift card offer that ended.) We review applications throughout the year. 

As usual, applicants came from throughout North America. By now we expect Georgia to come out on top, and they didn't disappoint, with a whopping 20 applications in just over three months. Tennessee also tends to send a lot of farmers our way. But this year we were surprised and delighted to see an unusually strong showing from Michigan, Ontario and Missouri. For this, we owe a big thanks to our Ambassadors who have helped introduce CNG to new communities. We're proud to have you on our side.
