The 2024 VOF Annual Producers' Gathering

The 2024 Annual Producers' Meeting took place on Friday, January 12th from 10 am - 2 pm 
at the Richmond Library.


Engaging producers in organic certification is essential to Vermont Organic's success! Every year, we meet with all of our certified producers to discuss important organic industry news and updates and vote on fee changes, committee members, and standard interpretations.

We extend our gratitude to all of the farmers and processors who attended the Annual VOF Meeting on January 12th. We appreciate your willingness to take time out of your busy schedules to attend, provide feedback, and vote on proposals. A full summary of the meeting voting results will be made available over the next few weeks. In the meantime, please note that all proposals passed without edits, except for the new producer fee proposal. That proposal was voted down due to a desire to avoid creating barriers that prevent new producers from applying for certification. 

We invite you to review the 2024 Standard Proposals that were voted upon at the meeting so that you'll have time to carefully read the changes and understand how they might affect your operation:
