Here is a very encouraging piece out of Civil Eats. It describes one of the most important developments in the market for healthy sustainable food in years. After an increasing gap between supply of organic food and demand, retailers are now investing in their own farming operations to up the supply. Only 5% of US food sales are organic and much of it is coming from offshore sources because too few American farmers have been willing to undertake the increased risks and three-year transition period. The proof lies in the fact that only a little over 1% of US farmland is certified organic! Perhaps the move by retailers will finally convince more farmers to take the plunge. We hope so! The piece has many juicy bits worth reading!
