organic wheat
Organic wheat is grown using no synthetic chemicals or fertilizers. Organic principals center around minimal use of conventional inputs and on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony.

Organic wheat is mostly sold through brokers and buyers, producers and elevators to ensure no combining with conventional grains. The key to purchasing organic wheat is to establish relationships with producers who are certified organic wheat growers. There are a number of organic wheat producers across the state. To be certified organic, growers must be qualified with an approved certifying agency for the state of North Dakota. Below is a listing of certifying agencies who can provide organic grower information. Those with a listed web site offer online search capabilities for the state.
