question: how much does it cost to "get" an organic farming license?edit on 1-2-2012 by Jason88 because: (no reason given)
Your question compels me to ask, why in God's name would an organic farmer need permission from a city, town, county, or state to do what was has been demonstrably a natural right to do for several thousand years?
What compelling argument can government offer that reasonably grants they the right to regulate and determine who can or cannot organically farm?
You need the license to SELL your organic food. You will be inspected, yada yada yada to make sure you're up to snuff with the "organic" part.

Ronning Cummings, 1/28/11, Huffington Post Article
I have read 3x now, the article posted in the linked article of "Fit Nation" and I see no acknowledgement given to Mr. Cummings for his work on this issue. Indeed, at the end of the "Fit Nation" article it infact is signed "Drew", whom I can only assume is the "admin" that posted it in "Fit Nation" on 1/31/12. Please see below:

My recent expose, "The Organic Elite Surrenders to Monsanto: What Now?" has ignited a long-overdue debate on how to stop Monsanto's earth killing, market-monopolizing, climate-destabilizing rampage.
