The Business Of Organic Farming
Thursday, 11/12/09 Noon and 7pm on Vermont Edition
By Jane Lindholm

Most people who go into organic farming do so because they love to get their hands in the dirt, or they want to play an active role in producing food. Making a lot of money or managing a budget doesn't usually top the list. Richard Wiswall is a longtime organic farmer and East Montpelier resident who says the business side of organic farming can't be ignored. He spoke with VPR‘s Jane Lindholm about organic farming and his new handbook on the financial nuts and bolts of organic farming, called "The Organic Farmer's Business Handbook."
