Consumers are increasingly interested in sustainable items and want to buy products that fit this idea. Many brands and farmers want to go in this direction but may not know where to start. Ciranda guides farmers through the transition to organic farming, helping them understand the long-term benefits for their land and communities.
USDA Organic certification offers opportunities for meaningful change in the agricultural system as the only food certification under federal oversight. While the benefits of organic farming are often well recognized, the stories of those who steward the land are often forgotten, leading to a disconnected supply chain. By facilitating collaboration and offering localized support to farmers transitioning to organic farming, Ciranda elevates their stories and strengthens the integrity of organic certification.
Register for this webinar to learn how organic farming can energize communities, build consumer trust, and strengthen our collective ecosystem.
