On 23 August 2017 The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, IA) reported:
The number of organic producers and processors in Iowa has increased 31 percent in the past five years. 'We are not even close to meeting market demand, and we don't have to spend much time marketing,' said Andrew Dunham, who with his wife Melissa operates Grinnell Heritage Farm, one of the state's largest producers of organic vegetables and fruit. When Francis Thicke of rural Fairfield converted to organic in 1975, he said he did so 'out of principle,' in the belief that it was the right and responsible thing to do. 'We didn't even have a market. Now our products sell themselves,' said Thicke, who with his wife Susan operates the 730-acre Radiance Dairy Farm.
