Organic Research Centre launches The Organic Farm Management Handbook 2023

By 12 October 2023No Comments

The Organic Farm Management Handbook is the only source of information on the costs and performance of organic farming.

At a time where external agricultural inputs are at a high, organic production as a solution to the transition to low input systems has never seemed more logical. This is one reason why the Organic Research Centre (ORC) are relaunching the Organic Farm Management Handbook to assist organic farmers, and farmers considering conversion, with navigating difficult farm business decisions.

Since their last edition, the past few seasons have seen extraordinary market conditions. Brexit in 2019 created uncertainty around organic certification for those exporting to, and importing from, Europe. Further uncertainty then struck in the Spring of 2020 as the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Food manufacturers had to adjust to new working conditions, food service shut down and retail sales had to be restructured. At the same time, demand for organic products rose through the pandemic lockdowns. After a tumultuous few years for the food and drink market, ORC’s hope is that the resurrection of the handbook will better equip organic farmers, growers, and prospective entrants with reliable market data, specific sector budgets, and sources of information and advice.

The price of 1 handbook is £35.00 to UK addresses including postage and packaging. You can order up to 5 copies using this order form. If you would like more than 5 copies please email so that we can quote you accordingly.

Please note that all orders will be dispatched from mid October
