NOA performs farm assessments
The NOA PGS Team recently assessed Farm Springbockvley and Farm Olifantwater West (near Blumfelde), Farm Krumhuk (near Windhoek) and the vegetable garden of Wolwedans (NamibRand Nature Reserve) against the NOA standards.
Thank you to all farmers and gardeners for their transparency and hospitality and to all NOA members and interested farmers who joined the assessments as observers! We had a very lively and interesting exchange with all participants who enjoyed the assessments while learning a lot about organics.
What we assessed
At Farm Springbocklvey, NOA assessed Nguni cattle and Damara sheep.
At Farm Olifantwater West, NOA assessed Nguni, Afrikaner and Bonsmara cattle, Damara and Swakara sheep.
At Farm Krumhuk, NOA assessed beef and dairy cattle, vegetables, herbs and fruits
NOA assessed vegetables, fruit and herbs at Wolwedans.
The Namibian Organic Association assesses Namibian farms according to IFOAM’s Participatory Guarantee Systems (PGS). It is a locally focused organic assurance system for Namibian organic produce which provides a credible and cost effective mechanism through which producers can provide an organic guarantee to consumers.
It is based on a transparent, formal, and systemized decision making process, and NOA members are invited to participate in this process as observers.
