CNG Alternative Organic Certification Newsletter 2

We're proud to announce that we just sent out the second edition of our print newsletter, Growing Above and Beyond! Read on for a sneak peek of the articles, and learn how to snag your very own copy.

Our print newsletter is exclusively for folks who have donated to Certified Naturally Grown in recent years, and features behind-the-scenes stories about member farmers and beekeepers.

In this issue, you'll read about how Francis Ngoh discovered his second career as a mushroom grower in Goldvein, Virginia. Turns out, farming isn't too different from engineering! You'll also learn about the compassionate ethos that weaves through every aspect of Shady Grove Farm U.P.’s longstanding and diverse farming operation in Gwinn, Michigan (psst, there's an adorable lamb photo in this story!). Plus, you'll hear how Zach and Ilana of Levity Farm in Alpharetta, Georgia are making farming more sustainable for farmers, not just the earth.
