Minnesota Surveying Organic Farmers

Minnesota Department of Agriculture is surveying the state’s organic farmers. The survey asks certified organic farmers to share both their opinions and experiences and includes 27 questions about profitability, production costs and challenges, research needs, marketing, and outlook. “The insights organic farmers share helps us focus programs and resources on areas that will make a difference to their bottom line,” said Assistant Commissioner Patrice Bailey. “Organic market demand is very strong, and we want to do all we can to help existing and new organic farmers capitalize on that fact.”
