Policymakers should also support three other initiatives that offer farmers and rural communities a great return on investment. First are Value Added Producer Grants to help build develop rural economies. Many small organic farmers have limited access to the markets that are clearly clamoring for their products. Lack of proximity to certified organic elevators, processors, slaughter operations, and value-added manufacturing is a challenge for many farmers interested in entering the organic marketplace.

We look forward to working with Secretary Perdue and Congress to help drive continued, and greater, success in the organic agricultural sector. The economic upside is significant, including thousands of good jobs and stronger rural communities. It’s time to make organic agriculture a national priority.
