Farm size - Farm size in great measure determines the general approach and specific tools and methods. Today, major food corporations are involved in all aspects of organic production on a large scale. However, organic farming originated as a small-scale enterprise, with operations from under one acre to under 100. The mixed vegetable organic market garden is often associated with fresh, locally-grown produce, farmers' markets and the like, and this type of farm is often under 10 acres. Farming at this scale is generally labor-intensive, involving more manual labor and less mechanization. The type of crop also determines size: organic grain farms often involve much larger acreage. Larger organic farms tend to use methods and equipment similar to conventional farms, centered around the tractor.
