The University of Illinois Extension Local Food Systems and Small Farms Team wants to help you be successful in whatever growing practices you choose. This entire section is dedicated specifically to growing organic foods. As this method of growing becomes more mainstream, we've created a one-stop resource for potential organic growers to easily find everything they need to understand organics, including various certifications, history, fruit and vegetable production, as well as a comprehensive list of outside organizations and resources.
