We have personnel changes to announce: Maddie Barkholtz left us in October to concentrate on finishing her graduate school program. I am very happy to announce that Lauren Martin started working for us full time earlier this month. Many of you already know Lauren as an MCIA contract inspector.

At the end of the year we had so much left to do! We are a bit behind on issuing certificates. If you need a certificate or Letter of Good Standing, please let us know. New 2023 planners have been mailed to clients, along with revised copies of the regulations. There have been very important changes to the “Origin of Livestock” section. We have included additional information with the planner and regs.

The winter conference season is underway, starting with the Minnesota Organic Conference in St. Cloud. The Northern Plains Sustainable Ag Society (NPSAS) conference will be in Fargo, North Dakota, and the Marbleseed (formerly MOSES) Organic Farming Conference will be in La Crosse, Wisconsin. We will staff booths at all three. Please visit us! See the events calendar for dates and other event information.
