Ten thousand farmers worldwide have created alternative organic certification programs, called Participatory Guarantee Systems (PGS). These PGS programs are fully committed to recognized organic practices, but they differ from third-party inspector models like the USDA's National Organic Program (NOP) in that they minimize paperwork and certification fees, and employ a peer-review inspection process built on local networks. This model is typically a better fit for small-scale producers who sell locally and directly to their customers.
