Locating Approved Products For Certified Growers & Processors

The National List is the final arbiter of what substances may be allowed in organic crop, livestock, or processing operations. The current version of the National List may be viewed on the website of the National Organic Program. However, there are several resources that growers, livestock producers and processors may use as guidance documents in determining if a product is approved for use in organic production.

NOFA Bulk Order: Baystate Organic Certifiers works with the NOFA chapters in Massachusetts and Connecticut to verify that all substances on the bulk order meet the requirements of the National List. All products on the current Bulk Order List have been reviewed and approved.
