Jim and Megan Gerritsen have owned and run Wood Prairie Family Farm in northern Maine for 40 years. Wood Prairie Family Farm, certified organic since the early 1980s, produces Maine Certified Seed Potatoes, seed crops, vegetables and grain.

In addition to farming, Jim has been active in the organic community for four decades, serving as President of the Organic Seed Alliance (OSA) and serving for over twenty years on the Certification Committee of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA).  Jim helped MOFGA pass the State of Maine’s GMO Labeling law in 2013, the second such law passed in the United States.
