Marin Organic is a cooperative association of Marin County organic producers whose livelihood is based on a respect for nature and a sense of place.
They understand the importance – ecological, social, and economic – of bringing the field closer to the table.
They are dedicated to continually improving farming practices, promoting the ethical, creative, and patient enterprise of sustainable agriculture, and encouraging a preference for locally produced food.
Marin Organic is a bold new concept for preserving farmland and farming as a way of life in the region, focused on environmental soundness and economic profitability.
It was developed by an association of farmers, ranchers, agriculture advisors and marketing experts to serve Marin County’s producers and consumers.
It is supported by the UC Cooperative Extension, Office of the Agricultural Commissioner, Marin County Board of Supervisors, Marin Agricultural Land Trust, Marin Food Policy Council, and consumers throughout the county.
