NY Times Graphics on Organic Farming

The May 2, 2009 New York Times includes an interesting article, Hot Spots for Organics on farming in America. Graphical maps depict the location of organic farms, overall farms, vegetable farms, orchards, and dairy farms.
The article notes that, "[o]rganic vegetables now account for 5 percent of all vegetable sales; organic dairies, which are the fastest-growing sector, now produce 1 percent of the nation's milk."
