Vermisterra tests each batch of worm castings and nutrient tea for heavy metals. Our castings are also tested for E. Coli and Salmonella- to ensure that we are always pathogen free! We are already certified organic by the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) and California Department of California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). You can find our company JL Organics LLC listed in the CCOF Directory!

Vermisterra is a CCOF business partnerAs one of the first organic certification agencies, CCOF (California Certified Organic Farmers) has strong roots in the history of the organic movement. CCOF was instrumental in advocating for federal organic legislation; our organic certification standards were used as a foundation for the USDA National Organic Program, finally making “certified organic” a federally regulated claim. After more than 30 years of fighting for organic integrity, we continue to certify, educate, advocate, and promote organic.

 

CCOF organizes educational and technical training events for farmers, handlers, and farm advisors to expand their knowledge of organic practices and ensure they are equipped to comply with organic standards. Learn more about CCOF and what they do at https://www.ccof.org.
