So much has happened with local farming and so much sourcing is local. Are your local and national suppliers adhering to the same certifications.
An Organic Certification is given by National Organic Program (NOP) which is a USDA accredited agent. Each of these certifying agents is authorized to issue an Organic Certificate to operations that comply with the USDA organic regulations. The NOP is a regulatory program housed within the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service. They are responsible for developing national standards for organically-produced agricultural products. The standards assure consumers that products with the USDA organic seal meet consistent, uniform standards.
