Hopefully y’all have heard the great news that Nevada has it’s very own private organic certifier! Basin Range Organics (BAR_O) is a 501c3 non-profit. The next step in their success is to help fund one of Nevada’s most knowledgeable young farmers on their way to the organic livestock certification training this May! Can you help?
Please make a tax deductible donation to help get Daniel Holley (Holley Family Farms) out to this necessary training. This program will cost roughly $5,000. The co-op will be pitching in the first $500 towards this cause…please join in and help get him there! $20, $50, $100…anything helps to get Nevada closer to having local certified organic beef, lamb, pork and poultry inspector!

Basin and Range Organics (BAR_O), formed only six months ago, was just awarded its United States Department of Agriculture ‘Certificate’, as an “Accredited Certifying Agency” as of January 26, 2016. Basin and Range Organics, organized as a non-profit organization, may begin granting ‘organic certification’ in four areas: Crops, Wild Crops, Livestock and Handling Operations per guidelines of the National Organics Program.” Previously only two certification areas, “Crops and Handling,” were available in Nevada. Basin and Range Organics formed after the Nevada Ag Council’s decision to drop the Nevada Department of Agriculture sponsored Organic Certification program.
