    Love heirlooms! For us we get the “What? You aren’t organic?” when we sell at farmer’s markets. Some heirlooms are worth growing and others aren’t.

    But to your point, niche markets could certainly be filled by conventional growers and compete on those same lines as taste and flavor. I know we try and try not to put down any more organic grower. Some folks will buy just because we are honest about commercial fertilizers and whatever pesticide we may use. Others walk away, but that’s really rare.
    Thanks for the point of discussion!
