There's never been a better time to enter organic farming than right now.
Strong consumer demand
Canadian organic farmers can't fill the current orders. As you now, profit exists in an economy where there's high demand and low supply. That's why switching now makes sense. The organic industry has spend millions on marketing and consumers are responding with their wallets.
