Organic Census

I was reading America By The Numbers in the NYT and saw that Organic acreage has increased 170% since 2000. In 2008 there were 4.8 million acres in the USA which makes up .7% of total US farmland.

Of course this is only the certified Organic farmland, there is likely about the same amount of acreage of Organically managed but not certified farmland out there and if that is the case than we have almost a 2% share of all the farming done in the USA.

We can do better.
