It sounds to me like these farms are just trying to replace fertilizers with random offsite poop, instead of actually building a proper system, so they can stick the "organic" label on and charge soccer moms out the hoo-haa.
I would love to here some of your guys thoughts about this.

Don't get me wrong I've seen first hand how powerful permaculture is but I feel we need facts to get more people on board.
The problem is harvest, it is way more time consuming to harvest a polyculture. It isn't a big deal if it is just your garden, but it is still noticeable. Scaled up to even a small market garden and it just kills you financially.
