Certified Naturally Grown
Swallow Hill Gardens has been accepted into the Certified Naturally Grown organic program. “Certified Naturally Grown is a private non-profit organization that’s not affiliated with the USDA’s organic program. CNG inspections are Peer-reviews carried out by fellow farmers. This approach, called a participatory guarantee system, or PGS, promotes knowledge sharing and fosters local farmers networks that enhance farmers’ ability to thrive. Our program emphasizes accessibility, minimizing paperwork and costs, and is based on a foundation of trust and direct relationships. CNG requires less paperwork and lower fees than the national program”.
