*Eco-Label Programs for Michigan Farmers*

Lia Spanilo, a graduate student at Michigan State University, has recently
put together a brochure, “Eco-Label Programs for Michigan Farmers” to assist
farmers in determining which, if any, are appropriate and beneficial for
their operations. It describes some more established labels, as well as some
that are in development. It also has a checklist that summarizes the broad
criteria embodied in each label.

Most of the 130 eco-labels summarized in this brochure are also available to
farmers in other US states. These include: American Grassfed, American
Humane Certified, American Welfare Approved, Certified Humane Raised &
Handled, Certified Naturally Grown, Demeter Biodynamic, Domestic Fair Trade,
Family Farmed, Food Alliance, Predator Friendly, Protected Harvest, Select
Michigan and USDA Organic.
