There could have been if folks had started years ago with
a focus on farmer-owned, farmer-run organizations, i.e. a real
organic producer's trade association. But no, other greedy hands had to
get into the till and feed off the efforts of those farmers who were out
there really doing it, the ones that built and nurtured the organic
movement from the start.
Let's hear it for a revitalization of NC OCIA! At least they promote
organic, not sustainable-with-a-loophole-for-Roundup-use.

Especially when you're trying to get them interested in organic methods,
not just sustainable.
Organic producers only need themselves to become successful farmers.
Anything else is a waster of their time and money. Access to the Web will
give them all the tech support they will need.
