As a wheat farmer in the northern great plains of Montana during the 1980?s the financial viability of fully converting to organic was a big driver for my father and me. We were able to reduce the cost of our inputs and increase the value of the crops we were selling which made a big difference in our bottle line. So much so that within three years we were making money for a change and no longer needed to go to the bank every spring for an operating note for the year. I would like to share with you the details of that experience as well as the current financial experience of a friend nearby whose family is currently farming a split operation of organic and non-organic.
