News Brief

Standard

Paul informed me today that we have been approved through the USDA for two grants.  One for a new hoop house and the other for funds to develop and NOP, or National organic program to help develop a…well this. Basically, the government will pay for you to become organic. We are already Certified naturally grown.  Quite exciting.  There aren’t very many people in the great state of Arkansas participating in these programs.  When Paul called to the USDA office to see about applying, the person on the other end of the line didn’t even know what he was talking about, because there aren’t a whole lot of takers in this area.  Paul had to be passed off to one of the higher ups to get any information.  But we’re in there for better or for worse.
