Organic food is now a $40 billion industry and growing. That’s drawn the attention of some farmers who have become discouraged by years of low prices for their conventionally grown crops. Harvest Public Media’s Grant Gerlock has the story of one Midwestern farm making the switch to tap into the lucrative organic market.


Harvest Public Media is a reporting collaboration focused on issues of food, fuel and field. Harvest covers agriculture-related topics through a network of reporters and partner stations throughout the Midwest.
