New Farm: The Magazine of Organic Farmers Association

When Organic Farmers Association first launched, we did so under the fiscal sponsorship of the Rodale Institute.  Together, we also resurrected the Rodale Institute publication, New Farm, which has existed since 1979.

For many organic farmers, New Farm was their key resource in learning more about organic production techniques and current research, as well as connecting with the greater organic farming community during the 1980s-early 2000s.

From 2017-2020, Rodale Institute in collaboration with Organic Farmers Association, published new paper editions, promoting certified organic farmers across the nation.  Currently the magazine is put on hold, but you can read past editions here.

Join today and support organic farmers!

Organic Farmers Association members support a strong voice for organic farmers in Washington, D.C.

The Organic Farmers Association is the ONLY national organization where solely independent certified organic farms determine its policies and work agenda. OFA was founded on the belief that the voice of farmers like you should carry the most weight in agricultural policy decisions.

In recent years, OFA has made a difference by putting significant pressure on the USDA to finalize the Origin of Livestock Rule to help organic dairies and finalize the Strengthening Organic Enforcement Rule to stop organic fraud and increase enforcement. We testified and advocated to allow paper pots for small-scale vegetable growers, introduced the ODAIRY Act of 2023, and advocated for stronger animal welfare standards for organic livestock and poultry production (OLPS Rule).

We have proved that farmer voices are stronger when we work together. Join us in this movement by becoming a member today!
