NOFA-NJ provides direct technical assistance and outreach that supports farmers committed to organic and sustainable production. Established in 2011, the Organic Farming Specialist position at NOFA-NJ is funded through a partnership with the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) and serves as a direct resource for farmers interested in USDA Farm Bill programs targeting organic producers, farmers confronted with organic production issues, interested in organic certification, or looking for funding information. The program provides on-site farm visits, newsletters and information targeting organic producers on the National Organic Program policy, pest or disease updates, soil health and technical and hands-on educational and training events.
