Since the early 1990’s, KOGS has helped local farmers supply our region with healthy delicious organically grown food.  We are a not for profit Kootenay based certifying organization dedicated to the production and promotion of organic agriculture and products.

As a certifier we are responsible for ensuring that only farmers and processors that meet the Canadian Standards for organic agriculture can market their product as ‘BC Certified Organic’.  We are one of 10 certifying bodies based in BC that are accredited through the Certified Organic Associations of British Columbia (COABC).

All KOGS programs and certification are supported by member fees and fundraising. Please consider supporting KOGS for a stronger local economy.

We offer:

  • An organic certification program for locally grown produce
  • A library of useful books and material
  • Mentoring for farmers starting out the organic certification process
  • Discounts at local stores

Our Annual membership fees are as follows:

  • Regular rate is $40
  • Corporate rate is $50
