Some weeds produce 250,000 viable seeds per plant. When you’re an organic farmer caring for your soil and crops by hand, one weed can cause a huge problem!

So why do farmers go organic if it’s so difficult? 

In this episode I talked to Russell Hamlin, General Manager at Grimmway Farms, about organic agriculture, the challenges of organic farming and why it’s so important. George Szczepanski, Director, Production, Supply Chain & Environmental Policy at International Fresh Produce Association joins us at the end of the episode to talk about the association and why organic farming is important to the industry, the environment and the consumer. 

Join us as we discuss:

  • Why Grimmway Farms believes strongly in organic farming
  • The challenges surrounding organic farming 
  • The importance of soil health and maintenance in organic farming
