IOA Webinar: Bryce Irlbeck, An organic transition experience - Mon, Nov 10 @ Noon (Oct 2020)

The Iowa Organic Association (IOA) delivered a webinar on Tuesday, November 10 2020 discussing the economics of running a profitable organic row crop farming operation.

Bryce Irlbeck, Owner of B&B Irlbeck Farms and Founder of AgriSecure, will present the challenges and rewards of organic row crop farming. Bryce will share his family’s long history of farming in Iowa. He will discuss the reasons he transitioned from conventional agriculture to organic production and describe the challenges and the rewards of owning and operating an organic farm.

Bryce now runs a 4,000 acre organic operation with his dad where they grow alfalfa, corn, soybeans, peas, barley, canola, and rye. Recognizing that his organic farm was succeeding while many others struggled, Bryce founded AgriSecure in 2018 to help farmers in his community and beyond learn how to profit from organic farming too.
