Farmers Paul Bickford and John Wepking explain their organic systems, which protect not only local watersheds, but also Gulf Coast fisheries at the other end of the country. They will talk about large-scale small grain production, processing, and marketing, and explain how they design crop rotations and market their whole rotation. They will also touch on crop storage, growing organic seed corn, mentorship models, and farm transfer.
