We’ve been saying this for years. To make a living in agriculture you either have to get big, or get smart. Instead of producing an ever-increasing number of bushels of a commodity that is ever-decreasing in value, why not seek to increase your profit margin on the units of production coming off the farm by adding value…drum roll please…on the farm. Profitable farming now possible on a smaller scale, lowering costs and opening opportunities for young farmers just starting out. Going organic is an obvious strategy.
