You don’t have to be a farmer to be a part of Vermont’s local, organic food system! You can make a difference as part of the network of organizations that provide critical services to farmers and consumers. There are currently two positions open in Vermont Organic Farmers (VOF), the organic certification program of NOFA-VT.

Since 1985, VOF has provided farmers and processors with a credible verification program for their organic production practices. VOF currently certifies 576 farms and processors to the National Organic Program regulations and assists our producers in marketing their products to consumers.

VOF is looking to hire two positions in our organic certification program to start in mid-September. The NOFA office is fun and fast-paced, and we have high expectations of our staff.
