Certified Organic Farming

Transition to Organic Farming with Confidence

The Transition to Organic Partnership Program (TOPP) is a collaborative effort created by USDA. It involves dozens of partner organizations to support transitioning and certified organic farmers.

Utah State University is participating in this program as part of the west/southwest region. This region is overseen by the nonprofit organization, California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF).


The Transition to Organic Partnership (TOP) team at USU will help farmers get connected with certified organic mentors, overcome financial and technical issues with transitioning, and learn about maintaining an organic farm.
