Market Your Operation

Planning is key. Take advantage of your transition period to seek out buyers for your organic grain products. Talk to them about prices, but also ask questions about market requirements. What varieties of grain are they looking for? What are the minimum quality requirements? What type of special handling, if any, will make your crop more attractive? By knowing your market requirements and potential buyers, you will be ready to hit the ground running when you harvest your first organic crop.
