Oregon Tilth Certified Organic (OTCO) is an internationally recognized symbol of organic integrity and is accredited with the USDA National Organic Program. OTCO provides a system that combines strict production standards, on-site inspections, and legally binding contracts to protect the producers and buyers of organic products.
Columbia Gorge Organic has also been recognized as a “Salmon-Safe” farm, by Salmon-Safe, a non-profit organization located in Portland, OR. They work to restore agriculture, urban streams and the species that inhabit them. We met the required conditions for a “Salmon-Safe” farm: irrigation efficiency, crop selection, pest management, erosion and sedimentation control and protection of waterways and wetlands.
