More and more farmers are looking to niche markets to diversify their farming operations.

Jeremy Brown, who farms in west Texas near the small town of South Plains, added organic cotton to his farming operation back in 2010.  He says it was strictly a business decision.

“It was an opportunity for me to get a little bit more price for my product,” Brown tells Brownfield. “As a business owner, it’s no different than Nike and those other companies and what they’re trying to do.”

We spoke with Brown at a recent USFRA Food Dialogues event in Lincoln, Nebraska.  He was part of a panel discussion on GMOs.
