Consumers have spoken and farmers are responding: Organic farming is what AmericaÂ wants. The number of Certified Organic farms has increased 11 percent since 2014, putting the number of U.S. organic farms at nearly 15,000, TakePart.org reported. The findings come from a study published by market research firm Mecaris.
Even though organic cropland, which accounts for 4 million acres, is still a small part of the overall farming culture in the U.S., states like California and MontanaÂ are leading the pack. Oats are the top organic cropâ€”probably fueling manyÂ bowls of overnight oats and homemade granola.
Do you see more peopleÂ switching to organic garming in your area?
