Scope and Content Note

Notable in this small collection of papers from Jones's long career in organic agriculture are organic certification records for Jones's own farm conducted by two organic certifiers (Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA) and Midwest Organic Services Association (MOSA)), prior to the establishment of a national organic standard; her testimony in 1990 regarding the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) before a Senate Agriculture Committee hearing; and a letter to the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB) concerning aspects of the National Organic Program (NOP). Also included are copies of organic certification standards for two certifying agencies: the OCIA and the Organic Growers and Buyers Association (OGBA). Also papers relating to the beginnings of the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service (MOSES), the organization which Jones led for seventeen years.
