Central Plains Organic Farmers – General Manager

Central Plains Organic Farmers – General Manager

  • This job is expired.

  • The Central Plains Organic Farmers (CPOF) is a bargaining/marketing cooperative for organic grain and livestock producers located primarily in Kansas and bordering states. CPOF was first organized in 1974 as an education association for organic farmers to develop organic agriculture, formulate organic standards, and establish organic markets. By the late 1980’s several organic certification organizations were established, utilizing broadly accepted certification standards, and were in business certifying organic farms and businesses. CPOF members were involved with these efforts. With a growing number of CPOF certified farms and a collective inventory of organic grain, in 1992 Kansas Organic Producers reorganized as a marketing cooperative to help build organic grain markets and to represent its members in negotiating grain sales and coordinating deliveries. The implementation of USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) in 2002 institutionalized nation-wide organic standards and certification procedures, and stimulated further growth in organic food production and marketing. At the start of 2018 Kansas Organic Producers changed their name to help show a more diverse area of coverage, so they became Central Plains Organic Farmers Association(CPOF).
