We would love for more sustainable farmers to join our community! Your first step is to get a copy of our LODI RULES binder which contains instructions, farming standards, and a pesticide risk tool. Click HERE for the PDF copy of our standards and contact email@example.com to receive a binder in the mail and to get on our emailing listserve. Applications are due to Protected Harvest, our third-party certifier, in February of each year. There is also a wealth of information here: lodigrowers.com/standards/.
Thank you for being part of our program and for wanting to promote sustainability! To purchase a sign for your LODI RULES certified vineyard with one of our seals, please contact Robyn at Gary’s Signs by telephone at 209-369-8592 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (she will verify certification prior to any sales). If you have a website for your farm, it is a good idea to talk about how you interpret sustainability and to give examples of how you farm sustainably. We have material created to help you spread the message too – visit lodigrowers.com/standards/.
We use #lodirules. People love seeing photos of sustainability in action and having examples explained in the comments. For some great examples of what to post, search Instagram for #lodirules and visit @langetwins, @cottafamilyfarms, @mohrfryranches, @boglevineyards, and @michaeldavidwinery.
