USDA to survey organic farms

The 2007 Census of Agriculture revealed that there are more than 20,000 organic farms now in the U.S. So it’s perhaps not surprising that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is about to conduct a big survey of organic production. It might surprise you, however, to learn that this is the first time that the USDA has ever taken such a look at organic farming. It almost makes me nervous to see what the agriculture giants are going to do with the information.

Better late than never, I guess.
