Organic production agriculture in Montana: Scaling up at Vilicus Farms

Doug Crabtree and Anna Jones Crabtree are the owners of Vilicus Farms in Havre, Montana. The 6800-acre organic farm is as far from industrial agriculture as you can get — they grow as many as 20 different crops every year, without any farm chemicals, and with a focus on building soil, stewarding the land stewardship, and co-existing with wildlife. They are also part of a movement of organic farmers in Montana who are working toward a larger scale sustainable vision of a sustainable economic marketplace for everyone in the food system, from farmers to consumers.
