Filling a Hole in the Organic Pipeline of the Midwest

Corn ClayMasters_HPMOrganic meat producers depend on having organic farm to feed their livestock. But conventional acres far outstrip organically raised acres in the Midwest. (Clay Masters/Harvest Public Media)Organic food is a hot market in the U.S. The Organic Trade Association says that sales over the last five years have grown 35 percent.

Clay Masters reports for Harvest Public Media on why more producers in the farm belt are NOT willing to take on organic production despite a hefty price premium.
