“Organic food and beverage sales have grown from $1 billion in 1990 to $26.7 billion in 2010.”
And sales for organic fruits and vegetables in 2010 increased 11.8% over 2009, despite the slow economy. Organic farming is also enriching communities and creating jobs. Research clearly shows the long-term economic viability of established organic systems for both farmers and the nation.
