In many countries, organic agriculture has affected most areas of agriculture and food production, often starting in niche markets such as ‘direct to customer’ or on-farm processing. It has been adapted to local conditions, both social and agronomic, to produce viable sustainable farming strategies. This has resulted in a multitude of sustainable and profitable organic enterprises emerging around the world (Stokstad 2002, Thompson 2002) showing that organic agriculture can have a central role in ensuring that agriculture becomes fully sustainable.
Organic agriculture is just a small part of the agri-business world, which itself is just a small part of the wider global socioeconomic system and its dominant cultural values. Stepping back from looking at the organic movement’s success, it is apparent that despite the enormous growth since the 1990s, organic agriculture still only makes up a tiny proportion of all commercial agricultural production (Norse and Tschirley 2003).
