Abstract

Overall, organic farm financial performance was similar or superior to comparable conventional farms. Financial output was often higher, and whilst variable costs were generally lower, some results indicate higher fixed costs (especially per unit of output). Organic net margins varied, but were usually superior to conventional comparative data, and the addition of support payments resulted in better financial performance for virtually all enterprises. It may therefore be concluded that organic farms appear to be able to perform at a similar financial level to comparable conventional enterprises and holdings.
