We're holding onto the last days of summer here at Certified Naturally Grown, and celebrating 64 newly certified farmers and beekeepers joining the CNG community this growing season! Check the list below to see if a farmer you know is among them. Plus, we have a new opportunity to get involved with the CNG inspection process.

Including Community Stakeholders at Inspections
- Farmers develop stronger ties with the community
- Observers gain rare behind-the-scenes view of a farm
- Farmers have flexibility with the "No repeat inspectors" rule
- Observers witness discussions among knowledgeable farmers
Everyone can get involved, including folks like farmers market managers, teachers, faith leaders, postmasters, pitmasters, and just about anyone in between!
We are prioritizing GEMs markets in our outreach and matchmaking efforts.
We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity!
