What is the process to become organic?


I wish to start an organic farm. I have bought a mixed vegetable cropping enterprise and I wish to turn it into an organic farm.

The process of organic production is the process of production without the use of synthetic chemicals. However you need to create and environment that can support growing crops, animals and vegetables without the use of synthetic chemicals. Thus improving soil health and quality along with vegetation. The process to become organic is by applying to an auditing company/ certifying body, I'm sorry I cant recommend any for vegetable certification as I'm beef and grain crops. However the ACO has a good website which lists certifying bodies. All of which abide by the current national organic standards. Happy to answer anymore questions
