Welcome to MOFGA Certification Services

New Hampshire Certified Organic Operations:  MOFGA Certification Services operates in New Hampshire and stands ready to work with farms that need to switch from NHDAMF to another accredited certifier. We appreciate that New Hampshire certified organic producers are facing stress in finding new certifiers and, in acknowledgement of the current circumstances, MCS will waive the $75 application fee for New Hampshire Crop, Livestock, and Processor/Handler operations in 2024. Applications should be submitted by April 27, 2024.
In addition to offering very competitive certification fees (flat-fee is based on expected gross income from organic sales in a calendar year), MCS also offers a paperless online application option, including an online payment method.
 
You can preview the required forms for crop and vegetable certification from the Certification menu. If you would like a paper application we are happy to mail that to you as well.
 
For further information and any questions you may have please contact MCS directly: 207-568-6030, certification@mofga.org or Laurah Brown directly at lbrown@mofga.org, 207-505-8000.
