The following news story is from the Washington Post and naturallygrown.org posted on August 27, 2013.

"Certified Naturally Grown" is a term being used by small farms that follow organic cultivation practices for their products, but do not want to seek certification as organic by the Federal Department of Agriculture because of the paperwork and cost. About 700 farms nationwide are Certified Natually Grown and about 1300 farms are certified organic out of 2.2 million farms. "Farmers who participate in Certified Naturally Grown rely on peer inspection by other farmers to ensure they follow organic practices, such as avoiding synthetic pesticides and fertilizers and using cover crops and rotation for healthy soil."
