North Central Illinois
Paul, as usual, I appreciate your diplomatic response. The premium certainly isn't free money, but it is good money if a guy can figure out how to properly manage an organic system. Freight is expensive, but there's still plenty of $ left after paying freight. As Orfarmer mentioned, there's data on certified organic acres published. Also, a lot of organic feed grains come from overseas and I expect that's pretty commonly used on the east coast. I personally don't think there's enough USDA oversight of that, but...

As for local organic production, I'm pretty sure there's less than 500 acertified organic acres in my county. I know of at least 3 organic producers that each farm 1500+ acres within 50 miles of me though. Most of them are growing for food grade markets though, like I am.
