If you are like many farmers, you may be feeling the pinch of the current market prices for conventional crops as they continue to dip while operating capital also seems to continue to tighten. Many farmers are frustrated and feel stuck with the current farming practices, which makes it difficult to stay in business. However, many farmers are finding a fresh perspective in regards to producing Organic/Non-GMO crops and finding opportunities to give themselves a raise and renewed hope for their family and future.
In my “Grow Organic – A Farmer’s Guide” eBook, I shared a brief portion of my personal story around the choice and transition from conventional to organic feed grade crops:
“For our farm, to make a better living, the benefit of increasing our margin per acre along with the intention behind the organic movement to improve soil quality and produce healthy crops for people and animals motivated our family to start the transition to organic production. In fact, our price difference between conventional and organic feed grade crops was $9.27/bushel for corn produced in 2014 and $8/bushel for beans produced in 2015. When we realized we could make between 210.48% and 219.25% more per acre in 2014 on organic corn and between 74.30% and 86.91% more per acre in 2015 on organic beans (even with tremendous weed pressure that year) with minimal investment of time, going organic was the best choice for our family and farm.”

We were motivated to look at our options and make a healthy decision for our family. “The benefit of increasing our margin per acre along with the intention behind the organic movement to improve soil quality and produce healthy crops for people and animals, motivated our family to start the transition to organic production.”
