After delving into what organic is in general, the most logical next step is to learn more about your specific area be it crops, livestock, or processed products - luckily, there are resources for this as well. The National Organic Program (NOP) has partnered with the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) to provide the following detailed guides for organic businesses:
- Guide to Organic Crop Production
- Guide to Organic Livestock Production
- Guide to Organic Processing
- Guide to Organic Certification
I highly suggest checking out these guides as they offer great info for beginning farmers and current organic operations alike.
