CNG has been working in consultation with the experts on our Mushroom Advisory Council since last spring to develop a new Mushroom Certification Program. This program will complement the certification programs CNG currently offers for soil-based produce and livestock farmers, and to beekeepers using natural methods.

Certified Naturally Grown seeks comments on the Draft Mushroom Standards from diverse perspectives, including mushroom producers, researchers, soil-based farmers, and interested members of the public. Feedback can be provided via an online survey that’s posted at Sleepy days during the holidays are a great time to read Mushroom Standards! mushrooms.png

We expect to begin accepting applications for CNG’s Mushroom Certification Program in January, 2016.

Kindly forward this note to mushroom producers and others you think may be interested. They may register for updates about our new mushroom program at

Thank you in advance for any comments you can offer. We really appreciate it!
