Do you know about the emerging Organic Farmers Marketing Association (OFMA)?
They don't have an online mailing list, but they have a Web site (in
development) at: http:///www.iquest.net/ofma/. Also a periodic (paper)
newsletter and gatherings (next one Dec. 6-8 in Kansas City Missouri). Their
mission is to support organic farmers and farming. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, I think I remember that Organic Gardening mag has a website, they might
have useful info and/or leads.
Hope you find this info useful -
