Organic Certification Program

Clemson University is a USDA Accredited Certifying Agent.  This accreditation allows Clemson to certify organic operations in the three major categories of certification: crops, livestock and processing. Clemson University strives to provide efficient and thorough certification service to South Carolina at a manageable expense as a public service to our state's agricultural industry.
