Permalink Farm Bureau Panel Discusses Challenges and Rewards of Organic Farming

A panel of Farm Bureau members who farm organically discussed the challenges and rewards of choosing organic farming at the American Farm Bureau Federation's 2018 Annual Convention & IDEAg Trade Show. Panelists included Tom Schwarz from Nebraska, Blake Alexandre from Northern California, and Carolyn Olson from Minnesota. Panelists mentioned the financial viability of organic production, customer demand for organic products, and enjoyment of organic farming methods as motivations. "We don’t need to be apologetic about what we do," said Alexandre. "We are farming like my grandfather did only with more knowledge."
