Published by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA), the 42- page directory aims to help Minnesota's organic produc- ers increase their visibility to the intermediate buyers who manufacture or sell organic food to consumers. The directory is organized both by county and by the type of organic crops, live- stock, fruits and vegetables produced. "We also envision organic producers using this directo- ry to identify unfilled mar- ket niches and form market- ing alliances," said MDA Organic and Diversification Specialist Meg Moynihan. "Organic livestock producers could use the directory to find sources of organic grain, forages, and animals," she added. Organic sales in the U.S. continue to grow at 15 to 20 percent per year compared to 3 to 4 percent growth for according to government and industry sources. According to the most recent data available, Minnesota ranks fifth nationally in the number of certified organic producers and sixth in the U.S. in organic cropland. The MDA estimates there are about 500 certified organic farms in Minnesota, with almost 150 certified organic processors that turn organic raw materials into organic food and feed prod- ucts. The new directory was partially funded by the USDA Risk Management Agency's (RMA) "Commodity Partnerships for Small Agricultural Risk Management Education Sessions" Program and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Resources Management and Development Division. The RMA and the MDA are equal-opportunity providers. The MDA has mailed out more than 800 copies of the new directory. Free print copies of the Minnesota Organic Farms Directory are available by calling 651- 201-6012. The directory is also available in electronic format on the MDA's web site at US.
