More and more farmers are choosing the organic route. Notably, conventional grocery stores are selling more organics than ever before. I think that an organic farmer will need the usual skills we all strive to have, but most of all, it is said that organic integrity is vital. How would you define this?

To grow organic products, I use compost and worm castings as fertiliser, and mulching to control weeds.Information can be obtained from the profile sites, my choice is as follows Uncle Fred's Farm: Livestock, Farming, Gardening & Homesteading

I think that organic integrity refers to the adherence to all required standards at the production level and maintaining these same standards to the point of the final sale. I do believe that the more traditional methods and materials result in improved environmental and human health.
