The mission of Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) is to sponsor research related to organic farming practices, to disseminate research results to organic farmers and to growers interested in adopting organic production systems, and to educate the public and decision-makers about organic farming issues.
OFRF’s work has catalyzed the development of new organic farming knowledge and prodded Congress, the USDA and universities to begin serving the needs of organic family farmers. Farmers and researchers have used OFRF’s grants as a springboard to further research of use to more farmers — building the public knowledge base that organic growers need to be successful. These researchers have often gone on to become leaders in organic agricultural science and their institutions have developed organic programs and become better resource providers to local farmers.
