Don't know what you consider medium to large growers California standards are
a little off from the rest of the nation when it comes to that. Muir Glen
processes and distributes organic tomato products nationwide and their chair
is on the NOSB. You might give them a call for farmer contacts.
There is a Western SARE project LW89-18 using rotations of tomatoes, small
grains, beans, and safflower using organic, low input and conventional
systems. You might give Jill Auburn a call email@example.com
Richard Smith is the UCCE farm advisor on California's Central Coast. He was
on a team that did a study of the economics of diversified organic vegetable
operations and would know the farmers involved. Try firstname.lastname@example.org or
the county generic email@example.com
