OFARM Organic Initiative: After a series of roundtable meetings that were structured, hosted and promoted by the Institute; all of this for organic farm marketing groups; an organization called the Organic Farmersí Agency for Relationship Marketing (OFARM) was created. OFARM was formed as an umbrella association for existing organic farm marketing groups. This organization provides a legal structure for these groups to discuss issues and organize market oriented strategies and operations in a collabroative environment. To enable this organization the legal ability to do these things, it was structured under the Capper-Volstead Act of 1922. Today OFARM has grown to contain eight member marketing organizations from the US and Canada.
