COFA is a non-profit, member-owned association dedicated to the highest quality organic standards, ongoing research and grassroots education.

The Certified Organic Farmer’s Association was founded to unite organic farmers and grant COFA status to select farms, ingredients and products that meet our organic agricultural standards. Our farmer-led certification ensures that each member meets the highest evaluative criteria. Each application to COFA is subjected to a thorough, panel review and extensive onsite evaluation. Each potential member’s farm is monitored intermittently over the course of one year to ensure all standards are upheld and maintained to COFA expectations.

Potential members will be expected to disclose any additional certifications to ensure full transparency. We also work together with the local community to strengthen cooperation between organic producers and consumers.
