Good Food Concepts

Certified Naturally Grown

Crescent City Farmers Market features several Certified Naturally Grown (CNG) growers - River Queen Greens, Grow Dat Youth Farm, and Too Tall Farm. CNG farmers don’t use any synthetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms. CNG livestock are raised mostly on pasture and with space for freedom of movement. Feed must be grown without synthetic inputs or genetically modified seeds.

CNG is tailored for direct-market farmers producing food for their local communities. CNG’s certification approach relies on peer reviews in which inspections are typically carried out by other certified farmers, promoting farmer-to-farmer knowledge sharing about best practices and fosters local networks that strengthen the farming community. This model minimizes paperwork and keeps certification dues affordable. You can learn more here https://www.cngfarming.org/
