Peer Inspections Build Farms - Are you in?

Our inspection approach does much more than verify a farm is in compliance with our strict standards. It also:

  • promotes knowledge exchange between like-minded producers,Who's Your Farmer Canvas Bag
  • fosters valuable relationships, and
  • provides peer-to-peer technical assistance, all of which 
  • helps farms succeed

We want to enhance these benefits and streamline the inspection process.

To make impactful investments we need our supporters to pitch in.  

Could you become a monthly sustainer and provide the consistent year-round support that enables long-term planning? We will be happy to thank you with this canvas market tote that sports our original hand-drawn design by Aly Miller.

A contribution of any amount will make you a Friend of CNG and eligible to receive our printed newsletter.
