In 2017, Americans spent nearly $50 billion on organic products, with organic food sales totaling more than 5% of total retail food sales. With average annual growth rates in the double digits, the organic industry is here to stay.
The number of certified organic farms and businesses grew 13% last year, and study after study shows that organic farms are more profitable than the average farm, by 35% or more. Lower input costs, comparable yields and prices 2-3 times conventional prices all make organic a compelling proposition.
As promising as it all sounds, “going organic” can be a long journey. Transitioning successfully takes careful planning, a good team, and the willingness to learn a new system. We see organic production as a diversification strategy and a long-term investment. The FPP was designed with and for farmers to address each challenge and answer every question through transition.
