It’s in the news often, and on the minds of SDFU members. Is organic farming something that would be profitable for me and beneficial for my farm? What should I grow? What crops are in demand? What are the obstacles and considerations in producing an organic crop or product? How do I do the right kind of advance research?
One source of good information is The Center for Rural Affairs, a group that the South Dakota Farmers Union partners with on a number of projects. Find their information on organic farming here: www.cfra.org.
