Any leads for organic custom hire?

We currently have 20-28 acres that we have been putting up into hay since owning this property. (20years). Before that this land was in CRP for 2-10 years cycles. I am needing any leads for custom hire work to plant this in non GMO or non-round up ready crop. We are not certified organic, but have never used and fertilizers or "Killers" on this property. Any leads would be appreciated! So.Central Iowa

    I would check to see who the closest organic farmers are in your area. All certified organic farmers are listed here: https://apps.ams.usda.gov/integrity/ You can search by state and then look at the towns closest to you. They may just want to rent your field, so it can be included with their organic certification. Otherwise, if you purchase the seed yourself and have a neighbor that is willing to do this small field, come and do it with his planter, that will work. You just need to make sure the seed boxes are cleaned out.
    Hope this helps.
