Organic Transition Trainer Program


OAK's Transition Trainers assist farmers who are interested in transitioning to USDA-certified organic production. Transition Trainers are organic specialists and are available for one-on-one consultations, providing a personal level of service and technical assistance on-site, at the farmer’s convenience. Transition Trainers can help in the following areas:   

  • Farm transition plans

  • Navigating regulations around organic certification

  • Fundamental principles of organic agriculture

  • Practical details about organic crop, livestock, grain, and dairy production

  • Marketing opportunities

  • Recordkeeping and other specific requirements
