Here’s an excerpt:
Organic Certification. Those words are pretty powerful in the farming business these days. Not only do people look for “organic” on labels, but farmers get a higher price—per pound or per item—for wholesale and retail organic produce. Margaret and I have never worked on a certified farm before, much less been in charge of one. Our current farm has been certified for almost 10 years, and this week we had our 2011 certification inspection.
