Real Organic Project

Sustainable farming & gardening organization.

Real Organic Project is a grassroots, farmer-led movement and add-on label created to distinguish soil-grown and pasture-raised products under USDA organic. Industrial powers are changing the definition of USDA organic.

Real organic farmers are struggling to compete in a dishonest marketplace. Eaters are deceived as to what they are getting at grocery stores. Real organic choices are disappearing from the shelves. The Real Organic Project seal will allow farmers and eaters to connect in the stores.

The first goal is to create an add-on label to USDA-certified organic to provide more transparency on organic farming practices.

They welcome the feedback of the organic community. The standards board meets in February of each year to vote on any proposed changes. To contribute to the standards discussion, please send email with thoughts for changes and improvements, to with the subject line Standards.

Mission Statement
Our mission is to grow people’s understanding of foundational organic values and practices; crops grown in soil and livestock raised on pasture are fundamental to organic farming.
