Although more and more large scale farms are making the conversion to organic practices, most organic farms are small independently operated and owned family farms of less than 100 acres. It’s estimated that the U.S has lost more than 650,000 family farms in the last decade. And with the U.S department of Agriculture predicting that half of this country’s farm production will come from 1 % of farms by the year 2000, organic farming could become one of the few hopes left for the family farm.
