Link to article about first US House hearing on organic agriculture

Today marked a milestone in American agriculture: For the first time ever, the US House of Representatives convened a hearing on organic agriculture. Organic farmers and advocates testified about how federal farm programs could do a much better job to assist farmers who want to transition their farms to organic production.

Read the testimony of Mark Lipson of the Organic Farming Research Foundation, a group long supported by Farm Aid.
