California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF), Inc.
Service Provider in Santa Cruz, California
CCOF is more than just a certifier; we're your partner in the organic movement. We support and promote organic through certification, education, and advocacy. Buying organic is a direct investment in the future of our planet, so we work to grow the organic market and our members' businesses by educating consumers about this important relationship to our food. As one of the first organic certification agencies, CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) has strong roots in the history of the organic movement. Although our beginnings were humble, CCOF was instrumental in advocating for federal organic legislation; our organic certification standards were used as a foundation for the USDA National Organic Program, finally making "certified organic" a federally regulated claim. After more than 30 years of fighting for organic integrity, we continue to certify, educate, advocate, and promote organic.
