Farm & Farm Based Business Registration
Thank you for taking the time to find out more about certifying your farm, farmers’ market, or local food system business. The Piedmont Grown certification program allows consumers to easily identify farm products grown, raised, or made in the Piedmont Region of North Carolina. Our easy annual recertification process will allow us to maintain high standards of integrity to maintain your confidence as well as the trust of consumers.
The cost of certification is $25 for farms.
Business & Organization Registration
Our certification program allows you to use the Piedmont Grown brand and logo as part of your marketing efforts. Within the coming year, we plan to offer mini-grants to help support your efforts to highlight Piedmont Grown products in your marketing program. In addition, we hope to develop a regional farm to trade program that brings together producers, farmers, chefs, institutional food service professionals, food brokers and wholesalers, as well as retail grocers.
The cost of certification is $50 for local food system businesses. Supporting businesses and supporting organizations can enroll for $50.
Piedmont Grown works with individuals and organizations who are enthusiastic about bringing attention to our cause of supporting our local farmers, living healthier lifestyles, strengthening our local economies, and promoting local food systems that will feed ourselves for years to come.
We accept donations starting at $25 which will help us grow and expand our vision and outreach through North Carolina. Thank you in advance for being a part of Piedmont Grown.
