California's Organic Agriculture: Two Decades of Growth
Organic production in California grew from $75 million in farmgate sales in 1992 to over $1.5 billion in 2012. Three-fourths of sales in 2012 were from produce. However, livestock, poultry, milk, and egg sales grew at a faster rate. Growth in the number of acres and growers reflect these trends.
