What is the largest expense for Organic Farmers?



  1. 0 Votes

    Depends what type of farm. Feed is the single largest expense for organic dairy farmers in the Northeast, averaging 44% of the annual operating expenses. Imported grains account for a large portion of the expense; organic grain costs 1.7 to 2.3 times the cost of conventional grains. The use of organic seed is now the single biggest expense on most organic vegetable/fruit farms. This has many farmers thinking about using their own seed and cleaning it on the farm with their own equipment.
