(NaturalNews) On a Page County farm in southwest Iowa, farmers have adjusted their crop methods to meet the demand of food-conscious consumers, and that demand is for non-GMO crops. A six-generation farm is switching over to non-GMO corn to cater to the more food-conscious markets in a direct-to-consumer way. Could industrial agriculture become more responsive to "real food" demands and reduce the profit margins currently in place that undermine GMO competition? Big Food will always plaster the television with big advertising campaigns, especially for cereals and pizzas, but will the general public become more aware of what's really in their corn and soy? That is what is at stake here, and certain rural mid-sized farmers are realizing the benefits of non-GMO.

Survival of the Fittest means non-GMO

Just two hours west of Washington, DC, chemical-free farmers are celebrating in preparation for the Des Moines farmers' market seasonal rush. Is there a trend in who demands corn that isn't laced with pesticides? Of course there is. This is just one among 2 million other principal farm operators in the country, with 8 percent of them being minorities. These are lucrative markets shaped by shifting consumer demands and tastes. After all, once you get used to eating non-GMO and organic (again), you realize how much taste difference there really is. It all boils down to this, and the raw food revolution is pouring out of these small-sized farms for good reason. Supply of organic is meeting its own demand, and sustainability isn't just some buzzword or eco-friendly grassroots campaign; it's universal, and countries like China choose THESE kinds of imports from the USA. In other words, the "demand" is demanding more supply. This might all feed the thought that people value non-GMO more than they do the organic labels. That would mean they feel and are realizing the threat of pesticide-food as cancer cases, diabetes and Alzheimer's -- as statistics go through the roof.

Deep in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, a grass farmer uses multi-species grazing rotations to run his farm, , the most sustainable and productive farm east of the Mississippi. Chickens and sheep take their turns fertilizing the pasture, and an intensely loyal customer base of about 400 businesses await their "perfect food." This is real farming, where healthy grass is the key to everything that happens. From biological insect control to buying and using the right cow manure, Polyface Farm supplies its own needs, seeds and topsoil, year after year, after year.

Sustainable farms are our future

This core goal of sustainability flourishes and is to be shared with the new food-conscious consumers across the USA and the world. Farmers who use nature's pesticides like diatomaceous earth, and who rotate crops and soil, those farmers will win this battle of "market share." Farmers who respect the land, the water, the animals and the humans who consume animals and their products -- that's our future. Make sure you are in touch with small farmers in your area. This trend is not just about mid-sized farmers either, remember the little guys.

Still many will beg the question answered: "Will this trend squeeze out the small farmers, or will it actually engage them and everyone else who is a part of the organic food revolution?" One thing is for sure: sustaining vision in the face of adversity will pay off in a huge way when the you-know-what hits the fan, when there's some economical and financial catastrophe in the homeland. Do you know any local or mid-sized farmers right now who will help you? Are you one? Do you have "who-you-knows" that will box and bag some non-GMO crop (nutrients) and fruit (vitamins) for your family when the supermarket shelves are bare when panic strikes (the search for filtered water)?

The non-GMO food revolution is in full swing. You should ride along and be healthy. Here are your "tickets" to ride...
