Going organic may be a clear way of getting back to basics—and getting away from
the havoc chemicals can wreak on our health and our environment—but the basics
themselves may not be so clear. How to begin? What kind of fertilizer and feed
are allowed? Is there natural pest management? What does certification entail?
And is this the way to go?
This book covers the basics and then some. Whether you’re thinking of starting
an organic farm or making the transition to organics, whether you’re growing
crops or raising animals, you’ll find everything you need to know in these
pages—from getting started to developing a marketing strategy. A list of
resources also points the way to other books, websites, and organizations
focusing on every aspect of organic farming, including state standards and more information.
