Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) provides peer-review certification to farmers and beekeepers who produce food for their local communities without relying on synthetic chemicals or GMOs. Our certification programs help ensure producers uphold the highest standards in sustainable agriculture while offering assurance to their customers. CNG was founded by farmers in New York's Hudson Valley in 2002. Today more than 800 farmers and beekeepers throughout North America are Certified Naturally Grown. CNG offers certification for produce, livestock, apiaries, and aquaponics. Our mushroom certification program will be launched this spring. Our grassroots, peer-review approach is recognized and advocated internationally as an important way to promote sustainable agriculture, and to include small-scale producers in the organic movement. CNG is a private non-profit organization that is not affiliated with the USDA Organic Program.
