Here are the three steps to participate in the program.
The first step is to become a member of the organization. Membership in OPMA is voluntary and is eligible for any individual or business regardless of your interest in accreditation. Membership is encouraged for those that want to support the effort and help to ensure its success for the benefit of Ohio’s farming industry. You can be a member and not pursue certification. However, if a company is interested in certification then enrollment as a member is the first step. All fees will be applied to the certification process.
