The demand for organic grain and organic milk has grown dramatically over the past 15 years. And it is expected to increase significantly over the next 15. In general, the cost versus income barrier is monumental, and prevents people from entering farming who wish to consider it. The superior profitability of organic milk and grain makes organic farming more affordable for the beginning farmer.

Our program, FarmStarts, will provide training for beginning farmers who have been in business for less than 10 years. Conventional and organic producers are welcome, and registration is free. We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming One-Day Workshop!
