Production Equipment and Supplies: Source List
(Listed in Alphabetical Order)
The Southern Organic Resource Guide does not endorse any supply companies, but we have included this list as a sample of potential suppliers, with the intent to assist organic producers. Organic farmers in the South suggested most of the companies listed. Inclusion or omission on this list is neither an endorsement nor an implied criticism. Most growers interviewed stated that they need sources of small-scale equipment and more information about specialized equipment. Regional conferences and trade shows are a good way to find equipment information.
