Organic grain marketing is substantially more complicated than conventional grain marketing, given the requirements and complexities of organic certification, longer distance shipping, more stringent quality factors and more. For these reasons it is good to have an experienced partner in marketing. Cooperative marketing provides an effective, collaborative marketing team experienced in the details of organic marketing and problem solving. The marketing team develops and maintains networks of competent truckers and reliable buyers. As a marketing/bargaining cooperative, CPOF is the marketing agent for member farmers and works for the farmer.
