Loon Organics Case Study
The Loon Organics case study was prepared as a prototype for a database of case studies that is under development. It features a pair of Minnesota farmers who have been producing and marketing organic vegetables since 2005. The case study illustrates how the keys to long-term farming success include not only hands-on production experience but also measured growth, careful planning, asset management, financial analysis, and strategic marketing.
