Below are the forms required to certify organic poultry.  Please read each one carefully. All of these forms can be completed online through the certification portal, or downloaded and completed manually and mailed to us.

  1. Producer Information
  2. Poultry Supplement  Use this form for certifying all poultry – chickens, ducks, geese, turkey, quail, guinea fowl – for meat and/or eggs.
  3. Organic Farm Plan  Most livestock operations will also need to complete an organic farm plan because they grow livestock feed and/or manage crop land for pasture or forage.  If you are certifying other crops such as vegetables you may have already downloaded or completed this from.  You only need to complete it once.  Be sure you also consider how you manage pasture, hay land and grain crops when you complete this form.
  4. Crop List
  5. Material List
  6. Field History Form
  7. Landowner Affidavit
  8. Organic Producer Endorsement
  9. Fee Schedule
