Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
In the Central Valley, organic farming is slowly taking hold
HealthyCal - 1/31/2013.
By Alexia Underwood - In the last few years, more and more growers in the Central Valley have been switching to organic farming practices - for at least a portion of their crops. Though the state doesn’t keep exact numbers on the number of farmers who have ‘gone organic,’ data collected by the California Department of Food and Agriculture from 2005-2009 indicate that the number of organic growers in the valley has steadily increased.
The End of the Farm Bill?
Other Words - 1/30/2013.
By Jim Harkness - The Farm Bill is the nation’s largest piece of agricultural legislation. It’s the usual vehicle for far-reaching programs to boost crop production, protect farmers, advance rural development, conserve energy, provide for international food aid, and, notably, run nutrition assistance programs.

Beginning Farmers and Ranchers at a Glance, 2013 edition
USDA - 1/30/2013.

These numbers are down from 1982 figures.

By Andrew Neff - Hampden: The man known as “the bee whisperer” is going to have to talk a little louder as he goes from the field to the classroom to teach local people all about beekeeping.
