Im going to guess that near the population centers (closer to the coasts) it is more common to grow organic food, as shipping to the market is much closer and keeping it fresh is easier.
Those of us in the Midwest are more familiar with bulk feed crops, and can grow and ship those crops on the slow truck to their destinations. With the worse basis we have here, an organic premium for feed grain probably looks a little better to us than it might in a state near a coast?
All speculation, but would seem logical?
There is a really active organic trader in Hope, MN, as well as one just south in Iowa that buy sell and trade organic type grains all across the country. I’d assume they are hooked up with them, and get their grains ‘from Minnesota and Iowa’ in that way.
